Parent Carers Together Coffee and Chat Drop In

SENDIASS attended the Parent Carers Together coffee and chat drop in on 10th August at Bramblebrook Community Centre on Stockbrook Street.

We spoke to the parents about future training opportunities for them in Derby and spent time discussing what sort of training they would like to be offered that would be relevant to them now, or would have benefitted from when their child was diagnosed.

A notice about information sessions

We spent the whole session chatting with parents and investigating what they would like to attend.

Sticky notes on flip chart paper

We received lots of useful information that we took back to the office and have already started to plan events based on the information we have gained from the morning. Once these have been arranged, we will be advertising them here on our website and on our Facebook page. Please keep a look out for our updates!
