Calm Connections in Stretford Mall have a new group starting on Tuesday 7th Nov, 2-4pm. This group is tailored to all parents embarking on their neurodiversity pathway. They feel parents need this at the minute as we can all agree there is a rise in so many children on the waiting lists.
It's a space for them to get information and to talk to likeminded parents who are at the start of their journey too. Parents will be able to bring the little ones along as they can enjoy the play area whilst you seek support and advice. This will continue on the first Tuesday of every month 2-4pm.
They will also be holding their regular parents face to face drop in on Wed 15th Nov 12.30pm-2.30pm, where parents can come into a safe space to receive support or just have a chat. This is a regular group on the third Wed of the month at 12.30-2.30pm.
