Parenting Programme and Workshops

Family Links Nurturing Programmes

We run two Family Links nurturing programmes per term, for parents of children with learning disabilities, ADHD, or who are autistic. The programmes may be online or in person, depending on demand. Online sessions will be held online via zoom while in-person session will be held at our office at 35 Hendon lane.

We have a limited number of places for each course. If you would be interested or wish to make a referral please use the Barnet Mencap Family Support referral form.

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 Tuesday 19th September 2023. This is for parents of autistic children or children with learning disabilities and will take place at our office. To view the flyer please click here.

There is also a programme beginning on Friday 22nd September 2023. This is for parents of children with ADHD and will take place at our office. To view the flyer, please click here. 


We regularly hold workshops on different topics that may be of interest to parents of children with additional needs. These range from specific sessions on applying for PIP and Blue Badges, to more general 'time to talk' sessions around topics such as ADHD. These usually take place through Zoom.

All workshops take place at 10:00-11:00 am and again at 7:15-8:15pm and are currently held on Zoom .

Upcoming workshops to be announced.
