We thought it would be helpful to share with you our current referral process and an update on how we are continuing to support parents at this time.
Referrals can either be posted to Bluebell Place, 2 Quay St, Bristol,BS1 2JL and will be picked up weekly, or you can use the new secure online form on our website, in the ‘How to Refer’ section. For general referral enquiries email Jodi@bluebellcare.org
The Buddy service is actively supporting mums on a 1-2-1 basis by phone, with 14 Buddies covering Bristol, S Glos, N Somerset, Bath & NE Somerset & Torbay & the South Hams. A Buddy can offer up to 5 supportive calls with a mum and are continuing to support mums already on their caseloads, as well as taking new referrals. Buddies are able to go for walks with mums and to meet in outside spaces, with some now also offering meet ups in local children’s centres and at Bluebell Place.
Our Mums’ Comfort Group 12-week group programmes are running online via a mixture of weekly online group meetings, recorded video content and follow up phone support. These groups are being run by our existing team of group leaders and for more information on these, please email: Jodi@bluebellcare.org
