Our main aim is to ensure the needs of our children are met. We bring together parent carers from across Sheffield to provide mutual support, exchange information, and influence policy and practice. We have over 2,200 members.

  • Coffee morning

    • Our coffee mornings are run by our friendly volunteers Thaeeba and Pat. They are open to all parent carers, whatever their children’s needs, whether diagnosed or undiagnosed, mild or severe. Pre-schoolers and home-educated children are welcome too. Pop in for a few minutes or stay for the whole session – no need to book. You can be sure of a warm welcome and plenty of tea, coffee and cake!

      Funded by People’s Health Trust using money raised by Health Lottery Yorkshire and Humber.
