Being a parent carer of a child or young person with additional needs can mean situations arise which are challenging. Somerset Parent Carer Forum have created a range of workshops based on topics parents have expressed would be helpful – workshops for Information, Support and Education (WISE).

All the workshops will be delivered or co-delivered by someone with lived experience of being a parent carer. Alongside this there will be a range of information workshops both face to face and online. Thank you to NHS Somerset for funding the program and to the organisations who are supporting the delivery.

If you feel nervous about attending any of the Workshops, please give Somerset Parent Carer Forum a phone call on 07543 680 395 and they will arrange for their parent carer representative, who will be at the session, to talk to you beforehand so you will know someone. Everyone attending will be parent carers who are experiencing similar challenges.

Bookings for the workshops are being managed by Somerset Parent Carer Forum. 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.
