As much of our support is currently delivered via our private parent/carer Facebook group, we encourage all parent/carer members to join. You can do this by completing the form on our website, or emailing Frances at email@example.com and asking her to give you access. Please note, you need to ensure you provide the email address that is linked to your Facebook account rather than any other email you use.
As our Facebook group is secret, in July we launched our new Facebook Information page
Bexley Voice – Parent Carer Forum Information Page – can be found by anyone and will be used to let people know what we have done and what we will be doing. It will not duplicate the information that is provided in the Bexley Voice Group and we hope it will mean we are more easily found by a broader group of parents and others who may need to know about us.
Courses available to book in May and June
Youth Action Diversity Trust (YADT)
Being a young person in today’s world is challenging and here at YADT, we understand that some young people need a little extra support to help them get a positive start in life or overcome obstacles along the way. We aim to help young people with issues that affect them. These can be a number of issues such as anger management, social anxiety, improving confidence, enhancing communication and dealing with stress or loss. The Behavioural Support Service can be delivered as one-to-one behaviour support or family sessions.
Our Behavioural Support Service also work with young people and their families to understand Autism and ADHD behaviours. Helping them to develop strategies for a calmer family life.
YATD have lots of useful courses for parents - take a look!
