I’ve had a very positive experience with Derby City Life Links. My recovery worker was very supportive, I had somewhere to come and talk about my situation and I was able to work towards my future goals. I learned mindfulness and assertiveness techniques, which have definitely helped me to get clearer on my healing journey.

TraceyLife Links Client

“I called Derby City Life Links after I found myself struggling to afford food for my three children. Life Links helped me contact various organisations and food banks and now we have enough food to last us two weeks. We all really appreciate your help, especially in these difficult times. Thank you from the whole family!”

AnonymousHelpline Caller

“With a sincere heart, I would like to say thank you for spending your valuable time with me. Your support and guidance over the past few months was immensely appreciated! Indeed, it has helped me navigate through my tough turbulent times and given me a clear direction on how to proceed in my life!”
