You matter, you are loved, you are not alone...
At Bridge the Gap we are committed to helping support children in our city to improve long-term outcomes and raise self-esteem and aspirations. We have always been committed to responding to the needs of our community, with the increased pressure on our service we have had to begin to scale this back. You can find examples of what we still have currently available below. If you can helo to fund our service then please get in touch.
Every Tuesday we run a FREE community hub for primary school aged children at our hub on Friar Gate in Derby.
The hub is run by the team at Bridge the Gap, there will be a minimum of two practitioners there to support and deliver activities. We have 10 children at a time and so booking is vital. Creativity and play is an important part of supporting well-being and with that in mind we have activities available that offer opportunity for children to explore this.
Practitioners will work to build relationships with all attendees to support them in their emotional education through their conversations.
For children only - parents to drop off and collect afterwards. These are stand alone sessions - so you do not have to commit to every week.
This service is kindly being funded by Derby County Community Trust, though if you do wish to make a small donation to cover costs of resources there is the option to.

FREE Parent Drop-in
Every other Wednesday we open up the doors to our Rainbow Room so that parents can come and ask questions around concerns they have, find some peace, grab a hand massage or some essential oils, and most importantly a good cuppa!
This space is an invaluable area of support, parents often feel alone and like they don't know where to turn - these Wednesdays are a chance for everyone to find the connection that they need in a space that feels safe. Volunteers are an essential part of us being able to afford this service.
Drop-in anytime between 10am - 12pm.
