Help Us Support Vulnerable Children, Young People and Families Could you help us support vulnerable children, young people and families in the Derby area? Established in 1974, Children First Derby provides three services to help support local children - a Family Support Service, a Mentoring Service and a Supervised Contact Service for looked after children. We rely on the support of volunteers, fundraising events and activities and vital support from local businesses and community groups to operate two of our three services.
