Next Steps to Support

Family Support Activities

Our Family Support Team provides a personalised parent/carer-led information and family support service. The team aims to empower parents/carers and promote their well-being by providing information, advice, and support. These activities are for those who have already received our First Steps to Support.

Early Intervention

For young people who have received a new diagnosis of a disability or who are awaiting an assessment, the family support team can provide an intensive service to parents/carers. The team can provide 8-12 weeks intensive support including emotional, and practical. They can also attend professional meetings if required. They can help with practical support such as routines, visual timetables, social stories and a range of information and advice on different topic areas.

Play & Leisure

Our regular activities include Under 5’s Stay and Play sessions, Parent/Carer support groups, Parent/Carer and
Girls/Boys/Child groups, Family Fun events, Carers events, courses, and workshops.

Our support is offered in person, through social media, or over the phone, and support groups where parents/carers can exchange information and gain mutual support and friendship.

We work with leisure providers and clubs to help establish specialist activity sessions for children and young people with disabilities who wouldn’t normally access, or have the confidence to access these services.

Some of the activities included are Sailing Club, Workshops, Circus Trips, Family Christmas Parties, Discos, Pantomime, Trips to the Seaside and much more.

Our Play & Leisure service helps to provide and promote specialist activities for children and young people.

We run Youth Clubs at various venues, creating a safe place for children and young people to meet like-minded individuals and engage in fun activities.
