Derby’s ‘The Keep’ Emotional Health and Well-being Service fully operational

Derby’s ‘The Keep’ Emotional Health and Well-being Service for children and young people is now fully operational following its official opening in April.

The new service has been commissioned collaboratively between Derby City Council and Southern Derbyshire CCG and delivered by a specialist team of clinical psychologists and therapeutic social workers from Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

It supports children and young people who are in care, leaving care, adopted or under a special guardianship order and those who have suffered sexual abuse or display harmful sexual behaviour by providing evidence-based interventions on a one-to-one basis.

‘The Keep’ aims to support Derby’s most vulnerable children and young people in improving their outcomes and building resilience.

A number of children and young people along with Sara Bolton, cabinet member for Children and Young People and Safeguarding, and Tiny Simbani, Youth Mayor, were invited to ‘The Keep’ to find out more about the service.

Bolton said: “It’s great to visit ‘The Keep’ again to see the progress that has been made since the official opening in April. The work the staff do is amazing. They help put the children at ease, listen to their concerns, allowing them to express their thoughts and feelings, whatever they may be.”
