They also need soft and feel children’s books, tactile books, fiddle toys, knitted and sewn tactile blankets and learning resources for sensory and self-sooth boxes and home learning for children and adults.

About Step Up, Safe Space (Taken from website)

The Overall aim of our community group Step-up, Safe Space is to address unmet health needs, both physical and emotional, in a holistic way, that are not been address by other agencies in New Milton and all surrounding areas. In addition to provide individualised self-sooth and sensory boxes for adult and children with sensory disorders. And to also address practical needs with food, clothes and small household goods. We are a none profit making organisation run by volunteers.

Background and history:
We are a community support group, primarily in New Milton, but covering all surrounding areas, called Step up, Safe Space, we formed in November 2020 and became a community interest company on the 19/01/21 our number is: 13143815.

The Directors background is as a family crisis support officer and two main volunteers who support in the running and development of the group have vast experience of public health nursing and in early years care and education.

To offer advice re obtaining support on unmet health issues, including mental health issues, ensuring food needs are met adequately, ensuring all safeguarding issues including domestic abuse concerns, are referred to the appropriate agencies within national guidelines. The group has a designated safeguarding lead.

To also offer practical support with referrals to other community groups, like the New Forest basic food bank. To ensure all donated food is effectively delivered to those in need and donated food is not wasted. This includes delivering to those currently in isolation and those currently suffering from the virus. And other support services including dropping off shopping and collecting and delivering prescriptions.

To also promote community cohesion with a sense of community pride, by enabling easy donation of quality goods from the local community. These are distributed to those that would benefit from the donations, across the area by members of the team. These donations are food, clothes, all baby and children’s items and small household items ( electrical items are PAT tested.)
