Every week during term time we are here (virtually) for you to have the chance to meet other parents who ‘get it’ and to get answers to questions so that you know the next steps for your journey. Every Monday morning during term time 10am-12pm.
We also run a monthly in person Tii Hub (currently in Huntingdon only).
We also have an online monthly profound and multiple learning disabilities group.
Details and booking are available on our events page.
Every month we run a participation session based on one of 4 themes where you will have the chance to meet the professionals who provide services for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities.
The themes are Education, Health, Mental Health and What other help is available.
These are your chance to be heard by professionals to tell them what’s working, what’s not working and what would be better if… as well as asking your questions. Professionals will also bring ideas to the sessions to share with parents and carers to hear how you would like services to be shaped.
