The Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Support Project was established in 1990 to address health inequalities in service provision to those families in Wolverhampton affected by sickle cell disease or thalassaemia.
The Project has been addressing these issues since then, including issues that emerge from the community it seeks to serve.
Family Support Service (0-19 years of age)
Since 2015 we have been involved in supporting families in South Staffordshire including Cannock, Lichfield and Stafford. We offer holistic methods of support for families to improve their quality of life.
The term ‘Family Support’ encompasses a range of services with the aim of strengthening families and promote the well-being of children. The support may be reactive when parents are facing difficulty or in anticipation of preventing problems. Family support works across a range of identified outcomes and works alongside the families to achieve and sustain these.
This service looks to support families with issues such as problem with behaviour management, support with parenting, feeling isolation or low self-esteem. Also to support those families needing help with education, development, financial advice, housing and other social or health issues.
