Covid 19 Update

We are still running during the current pandemic although  due to current legislation  we are unable to do home visits  but skype sessions are available.

We would like to say a BIG thank you yo the CAF Coronavirus Emergency Fund for their support, which has enabled us to adjust how we work and to enable us to keep supporting families  and people in crisis.

And also a thank you to all the team for the amazing work you do without you there would be no Family needs matter.



Family Needs Matter provide a wide range of services covering Family Life skills including the importance of positive communication within the family environment, our aim is to assist families to work together, communicate and listen to each other to help solve problems.

We primarily cover Amber Valley, Erewash, Derby & Nottingham but don't panic if your not in one of these areas we can help you find someone local to yourself and refer you into their service or alternatively you can self refer yourself into our online counselling and support services.



We help and support families who have or have been affected by Trauma, Domestic Abuse, Mental Health, Addiction, Bereavement or other life issues.


We act early, to stop problems from getting worse, or ideally prevent them from happening in the first place.









Early intervention means providing support and services to families as problems emerge or if there is a strong likelihood that problems will emerge in the future.

We offer support workers, counsellors, life coaches who can work alongside other agencies who your family maybe working with already.
