Current Groups

Usually we run groups and workshops to enable us to reach more families and provide a welcoming and supportive environment for those who come to use our services. Groups can be an excellent way for families and children to share their experiences, as well as build up a local support network.

Unfortunately, due to current restrictions, we are unable to run groups but here is a list of some of the regular groups and workshops we have run in the past.
