On the 18th of May we held our monthly Parent Carer support group here at Carers Leeds. This session was attended by a speaker from SENDIASS (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Service) who came to give information to parents about educational issues in children with SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities).

This session was well attended and all of the parents who came along agreed that it was very useful to be able to ask someone directly about their individual circumstances. There was also food, coffee and a chance for the parents to chat to others who maybe have similar experiences.

The Parent Carer Support Group runs here at Carers Leeds each month during term time, usually on the 3rd Thursday of each month. If you would like to attend the group, or for more information, please call our advice line on 0113 3804300.

In June the group will be slightly different. To celebrate Carers Week (12th – 18th June) we will be providing a session for Parent Carers to go bowling on Wednesday 14th June at 11am. This will be a parent carers only session; hopefully a chance for a little bit of fun whilst the kids are at school. If you would like to book a place please call the Carers Leeds Advice Line on 0113 3804300 or email adam.savage@carersleeds.org.uk.
