New Year Wishes

Wishing you all the best for 2022.

As we reflect back on what 2021 brought us, we want to send our love to each one of our families and supporters. We know that there have been difficult times. We hope that we can play a small part in offering some comfort along the way, letting people know they aren’t on their own.

In the last 12 months we have (in no particular order!):
πŸ’›Been blown away by our supporters, with so many sponsored events, birthday fundraisers, gifts in memory of loved ones, post shares and good wishes
πŸ’›Sent 635 free parent packs to neonatal units, hopsices, healthcare professionals and families, across the UK, for those at the very start of their HIE journey
πŸ’›Funded 300 hours of counselling/therapy, supporting the mental health of our families
πŸ’›Granted 32 equipment fund applications – as always, on our needs not means tested basis
πŸ’›Recruited 2 new team members, Liz and Michelle, meaning we can reach more families and offer more support
πŸ’›Launched our new Parent Panel, ensuring we represent the voices of all experiences/outcomes
πŸ’›Got an app! The first HIE-specific app for all families and healthcare professionals
πŸ’›Posted 200 Christmas letterbox gifts to all our families
πŸ’›Run the HIE awareness day #HeardofHIE
πŸ’›Taken part in research projects, study days and information sessions

πŸ’›Gratefully received grants from the National Lottery, Box Power, Tesco Groundwork, Local Giving, Arnold Clark Community Fund and Virgin Money O2 Together Fund, ensuring we can offer the above support for a while longer

There’s all the behind the scenes work too, and we really do mean it when we say we couldn’t do it without you.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Peeps this last 12 months. For all the lovely messages we get, please know just how much it means to us.

Of course we have plans to do more over the next year (we can’t wait!), and we’ll be sharing them with you as we go along.

We hope that 2022 is calm and peaceful for you.
With love,
All @Peeps
