Coffee mornings

The Family Liaison Adviser organises coffee mornings for parents, carers and other adult family members and friends involved in the care of their child. This is an opportunity to connect with other families and get support for the things you are experiencing. 

 

Guest speakers are invited for particular sessions and in the past we have had a range of topics like Understanding Autism, Sensory processing, Toileting, Managing behaviour, and much more!

Thu 5th, Thu 12th & Thu 19th May: 10:30 am - Writing for Wellness

(Zoom meeting)

Mon 9th and Mon 15th May is Mental Health Awareness and Traysi Matthew (Woodlands Family Liaison Adviser) will be offering parents and carers time to participate in a wellness activity - writing. This will be a safe and welcoming writing space for self-expression and self-care, where they can set aside time in their week to write with others. It is not a writing technique workshop or a therapeutic writing group, we are not bothered with grammar, perfect sentences, gripping stories or rhyming verses. It is about the writing process and how it can encourage healthy wellbeing by helping you make sense of the world around you and your thoughts and feelings. 

Join us with a pen or notebook, or an Ipad or phone! However you feel comfortable to write!
