Parents find support at information day

10th May 2024

  • Almost 100 parents attended our annual information day at Niagara Conference and Leisure Centre on 8 March.

    The event centred around support for children and young people with anxiety, sensory challenges and behavioural issues.

    Attendees were able to browse information stalls and talk to representatives from over 30 local services. A range of partner organisations – as well as our own Peer Support Workers – led workshops focused on equipping parents with practical strategies for supporting their children at home.

    Feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive, with 100% of parents rating the event as either “good” or “very good”.
