Just Family CIC - Perinatal/Maternal/Parent Mental Well-Being Support

Hello From Just Family

We just wanted to update you and share with you our current support offerings. We have recently been awarded funding so are able to offer our services free of charge and due to the strange times we have seen an upsurge in this Mental Well-Being need. 

Please do share our offerings to colleagues and/or anyone you feel would benefit from our support at this time. 

Easy search for health and wellbeing apps

It is more important than ever to use digital health solutions to support our most vulnerable.  To aid this Staffordshire County Council has recently procured a digital tool from the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Apps (ORCHA) to make it easier for people to find good quality apps across different conditions and behaviours.

You can use the search to find top rated apps across different areas, such as stopping smoking, improving your mental wellbeing, keeping active and managing health conditions.

Recommend our trusted library of hand-picked health apps to support those in Staffordshire at risk

During the current ongoing coronavirus outbreak, we are all adapting to new ways of delivering health and wellbeing guidance and care support to our at-risk residents.

Digital health and wellbeing apps can help older residents or those with long-term conditions to manage their health at home, but there are thousands to choose from and not all apps can be trusted to offer clinical assurance and up to date advice.

Foodbank Coordinator role to be piloted at YMCA Burton

The recent Coronavirus pandemic saw a 51% increase in demand for the foodbank at YMCA Burton. Although the use the foodbank went up, unfortunately for a time, the donations reduced dramatically, due to a combination of issues, namely people bulk and panic buying in the super markets and possibly the regular donators shielding.

Despite this, the foodbank managed to sustain the service users and no one was turned away.
