Free online workshops – from sleep to handling meetings

Contact Cymru (Wales) provides free online workshops on a variety of topics. Our online workshops are held on Zoom, and we can give advice on how to install and use Zoom before the workshop is held. If you prefer to not be visible or audible on screen during the workshop, that’s no problem.

If you care for a child with a rare condition, you’ve likely been at many meetings and appointments with doctors, teachers, health professionals and support workers.

Confidence in planning, preparing for and handling meetings is a useful skill to have in your toolkit. This session will help you to recognise your strengths and feel better able to express yourself in meetings.

Better Together disability sports sessions

We’re excited to be running two Better Together sports sessions in April for disabled children and young people in Mid & North Wales.

Together with our partners Urdd Gobaith Cymru and the Welsh Rugby Union, these sessions give children the chance to try out a selection of adapted and accessible sporting activities. Parent carers can take the opportunity to meet other families and make friends. Taster sessions on offer include activities such as football, athletics, basketball, cricket, boccia, golf and rugby.

These sessions are for families of children with any additional need or pan-disability, with or without a diagnosis. We don’t turn anyone away.
