Family workshops


To ensure the families we support and the children they care for remain as safe as possible, all of our face-to-face events and workshops were postponed at the start of lockdown.

We have now arranged a series of free virtual workshops as a way of delivering our family support services during these challenging times, Please click onto the appropriate link below to book onto your chosen workshop/s.

We are continually adding new dates, so if there is not a workshop suitable for you, please come back again later.
