South Glos Support Group 

At Support Group last month we worked on the issues around transition and moving on. This month we welcome Kath Fryer from Cerebra - the charity set up to help improve the lives for children with brain related conditions. Kath will be telling us more about the projects, e-briefings, workshops and grants the charity have available and which your family may be able to benefit from.

It is our last session before the summer holidays and we look forward to welcoming you for some space away from children to talk about any concerns you may have about their special education provision. Tuesday 17th July 2013 @ Brimsham Green 7.30- 9.00pm.

We will be back at Brimsham Green in September in our regular slot from 7.30 'til 9.00 p.m. and I'm delighted to be able to tell you that from December we will be meeting regularly at the Park Centre in Kingswood too.

If you can't come on Tuesday, have a lovely summer.
