  • Information session: Managing stress (evening)

    • Everyone has stress in their lives – but parents of children with additional needs often have a completely different list of stressors from everyone else. You may be fighting with services to get the right support for your child, or worrying about their transition to a new school. You are probably juggling lots competing demands on your time, like work, appointments, siblings and elderly parents.

      This session is an opportunity to take some time out and explore how to look after yourself. You are your family’s “glue” and if stress overcomes you, then they will struggle.

      This session will be repeated on 24 March 2020.
