Our Parent Support Group can be found on Facebook and provides peer support and advice from other parents.
Our Facebook page helps to keep members informed of the support available in the local area. We also attend events to promote awareness. We run a summer & Christmas fair which helps us to raise funds to keep our service free for familys.
Our Coffee Mornings are Parent Led and are currently held bi-weekly in Bognor and Chichester. These meetings offer emotional support and signposting to support in the local area. Coffee mornings currently run on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Please see our calendar for more details.
