FAMILY SUPPORT WORK (FSW) IN SUSSEX

At the start of a new financial year for FSW, we are looking at how best we can reach those parts of Sussex which  do  not  currently have a practitioner to support them. There is a real need for support in more rural parts of  Sussex  including  Petworth,  Midhurst,  Hurst  and Sidley/Rye, so we are focussing our efforts on securing funding that will enable us to set up new staff in these areas. We are sadly having to turn away referrals at the moment as we do not have the capacity to support any more families until we can bring new staff in.

Our foodbank is running low on stock at the moment so if you are able to organise a collection we would be incredibly grateful. We are particularly low on tinned fruit, jams/condiments, stir-in sauces and pasta/rice (but we don't need teabags or soup). [Editor's note: Food items donated to the collection boxes in Kirdford & Plaistow churches are passed on to FSW for their foodbank.]
