About the Advantage Club

Why Have Children First Derby launched The Advantage Club Scheme?

Until April 2014 Derby City Council funded a Family Support Service for city families provided by Children First Derby. Unfortunately this local authority funding is no longer available.

With over 41 years experience, we know that an early-intervention service supporting vulnerable families has never been more needed.

Children First Derby are so convinced of the need for this Service that our Trustees have decided to use a substantial proportion of the charity’s reserves to fund the continuation of The Family Support Service.

As funding this service from our reserves is not sustainable in the long term, we launched the Children First Advantage Clubas a way of generating regular income to pay for it.

This initiative is based on the card holder paying a subscription of £10 per month in return for discounts from a variety of Derby businesses including popular pubs and restaurants.

We put children FirstcopyOur target is to sign up 500 people, generating the £60,000 pa income that will enable us to maintain and expand this essential service, to meet the demand from Derby families in need.

Help us to help others, and benefit you.
