We’ll still bee here…
As England is preparing to go in to a second lockdown, we just wanted to reassure everyone that we are still here, and will be continuing to support as much as we can.
A reminder of some of the things we offer to anyone in the UK who has been affected by HIE (and we’re always open to suggestions and new ideas!):
Free parent packs for families at the very start of their HIE journey (available either directly or via neonatal units)
Specialised counselling, CBT or EMDR therapy, arranged and funded (all sessions take place over the phone at a time to suit, so no worries about shielding / social distancing)
Up to £400 towards the cost of equipment, that isn’t always available on the NHS
Peer support – if you want an informal chat with a HIE mum or dad who “gets it”, there’ll always be a kind ear to listen or a gentle reply to an email/text.
To sign up to any of the above, and to receive our monthly updates just complete the quick referral form on our website https://www.peeps-hie.org/hie-awareness-support/
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if there is anything at all we can help with. There’s no such thing as a silly question, and you never need to apologise for reaching out – it’s what we’re here for.
Stay safe and well,
With best wishes
