We have been on quite a journey since we first started in 2009 as 8 parents meeting in a cafe wondering how we can support one another and make a difference and positive change for our children and young people with special needs and disabilities.
We are so proud in 2019 to be opening our first community base where our wonderful community of parents and carers can come on a weekly basis during term time for information, advice and support, or even just a cuppa and a conversation with another parent carer who gets it. We share the highs and the lows, the joys and the challenges of disability parenting. There really is nothing like walking into a space where you can relax and know that you are understood.
No need to book, you can just drop in or bring a friend.
Exactly how our community space will be used will be shaped by you our community, but we expect there will be a mixture of talks, informal drop-ins, teas, coffees, tears and tissues, laughter and silliness and maybe some relaxation sessions thrown in. Watch this space and follow us on Facebook to find out more. We are also on Twitter.
