A message from our CEO

This isn’t business as usual, and it’s a time of great stress and uncertainty. It’s also a moment in time when the work we’re doing is its most critical.

My time and thinking is now wholly focused on COVID-19 and on how DMSF can restart, recover and best play its role to ensure the mental health needs of our young people, staff and supporters is met. My team and I want you to know DMSF will continue to do its part, and we won’t stop looking for new opportunities to ensure the most vulnerable in society are supported.

Taking the chance out of success for our young people, and making it a choice

We need YOUR help

Our response to COVID19 will define a generation. Please donate and help us to support the most vulnerable children and young people in our care so that they can cope with today and prepare for tomorrow.

Every penny that you give will go straight to initiatives that support those families most in need in the community.
