Support from fellow parent-carers has proved to be one of the most effective ways in which families of children with special educational needs and disabilities build resilience. Reaching Families has therefore established a number of parent support groups at various locations across West Sussex.Known as Umbrellas, our groups provide an informative, supportive, relaxed and non-judgemental environment within which parents can swap life experiences, share hints and tips, seek advice and share information and resources. Our groups, which currently meet monthly, are based in Billingshurst, Cuckfield/Haywards Health, Littlehampton and Worthing.
If you are interested in joining the Umbrellas group in Worthing or Littlehampton please contact Rosemary Hudson on 07704 037664 or email her.
If you are interested in attending the Umbrellas groups in Cuckfield/Haywards Heath or Billingshurst please contact Michele Creed on 07470 005734 or email her.
