SUPPORT GROUPS, CLUBS & TRAINING
A personalised service
It's easy to feel isolated when you have a child or loved one with special needs. You may feel friends and family struggle to understand what you're going through and would like to meet people who are in a similar situation or professionals who can offer support.
You might also feel like your choices of leisure activities are very limited, and sometimes have to be planned with military precision because of the potential for things going wrong.
I can put you in touch with charities and organisations in your area who can tailor support to your child or family. I can also let you know what other useful services might be available, such as special needs hairdressers.
You can be registered on mailing lists for updates on activities for disabled children or adults. I can also tell you about free and subsidised clubs in your area, as well as parent support groups.
You might like to learn more about the disability your family member has. I can also let you know about any local or national parent / carer training that is taking part.
