WISE up Workshops
The Somerset Parent Carer Forum have created a range of fantastic workshops based on topics parents have expressed would be helpful – Workshops for Information, Support and Education (WISE).
All the workshops are delivered or co-delivered by someone with lived experience of being a parent carer. Alongside this there will be information workshops held both face to face and online. Bookings for the workshops are being managed by SPCF. You don’t need to a member of the forum to attend but will need to be added to their database to enable your booking details to secure. Please see the latest dates below:
Chill & Chat
Two new groups have been added to the Chill & Chat locations. The first is Henstridge, and from January SPCF will be running the Bridgwater Parent Carer Support Group, this will now run as part of our Chill & Chat support groups. More groups will be starting soon in new locations. As part of our service, we offer reminders of groups via a text messaging service. Please email us if you would like to be added to this service.
All parent carers are welcome to attend any of the parent carer forums groups if they have a child with additional needs and or disabilities 0-25. Your child does not need a diagnosis for you to attend, come along for a cuppa and chat with other parent carers. The groups are a place to make new friends and share experiences and ask any questions you may have.
