Service summary

A support group for parents and carers. Also organising outings and events local clubs and activities. I am just a parent of a child with additional needs who got so fed up being so isolated especially during the holidays so thought time to change it. weekly Lego club and weekly Sensory Play. Several outings and events plus lots more to come. Gardening group coming very soon more info in the closed group but its getting exciting now - get the family out the house and mixing with others who 'get it' the children can be themselves around those who have seen it all before who won't point and stare and won't make anyone feel uncomfortable. All clubs and activities will run term time AND during the holidays - the holidays are probably the most isolating so I want to make sure there is plenty to do for all the family. Lots more in the pipeline. I am in the process of discussing music therapy sessions plus a siblings group - a group just for siblings away from everything and mixing with others who know exactly how they feel.

The group on Facebook is a closed group for those who need help and advice or support
