Women chatting in support group

We offer regular face to face support to parents and carers in the form of ‘support groups’ and ‘surgeries’.

Support Groups

Our local co-ordinator is available at our support group meetings.  We sometimes also invite professionals to give talks on specific issues.  Our support groups are open to all and regardless of the area in which you live.  Unless otherwise stated, these are drop in sessions with no need to book.  Please note that support groups do not generally provide the opportunity to look at paperwork in depth.  Individual appointments can be offered for this purpose, or you are welcome to book a slot at one of our surgeries (see below).
