Family Links Nurturing Programmes

We have two Family Links nurturing programmes coming up, for parents of children with learning disabilities or autism. The programme will have the choice of online or in person sessions. Online sessions will be held online via zoom while in-person session will be held at our  office at 35 Hendon lane.

We hope to be able to help as many people as we can for the next set of sessions, so get in touch if you would be interested.

Please be aware that the Family Links nurturing programmes close to new attendees after the second session in order to retain a secure communal environment for parents.

The next programme will begin on 10th September on Zoom. This is for parents of autistic children. To view the flyer please click here.
