We provide: 

  • Supervised contact for Looked After Children

First Steps ED is Derbyshire’s only eating disorder charity and exists to support individuals and their families whose lives are impacted by disordered eating and eating disorders. We provide support and counselling to individuals and provide groups with opportunities for volunteering. 

 Our founding principles are built up from lived experience with many of our staff having lived with and recovered from eating disorders which has included compulsive exercise.

 If you participate wanting to raise funds for us during this event we need your reassurance that you are exercising for health rather than to cope with anxiety, weight and body shape.

The Jane Tomlinson Appeal was established by the late Jane Tomlinson CBE. We support a wide range of charities across the North and the Midlands to improve the lives of children and the lives of people who are affected by cancer. 

 


Rainbows Hospice covers the whole of the East Midlands providing care and support for the region’s children and young people who need it the most.  It was founded by Gail and Harry Moore, whose daughter, Laura, died of Leukaemia in 1989. Laura's favourite thing in the world was a rainbow.

Rainbows opened its doors in 1994. Since its official opening in April 1995 by HRH Prince of Wales, thousands children, young people, their families, siblings, relatives and friends from across the East Midlands have used the hospice. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare to be told their child will die before them. But for an estimated 20,000 families across the UK, this is a reality. Some of these children will die when they’re very young, others will deteriorate slowly over a number of years. In most cases, full-time care falls to the parents – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
