OK the bug is back and not likely to go anywhere for some time yet!
Life must go on and the Parents' Federation is planning its own little fightback in order to help carers stay abreast of things and overcome the awful isolation and frustration
- Over the coming 6 months we hope to contact all members who we do not have up to date mobile numbers for in order that we can keep you updated with regular texts - if you already receive a text then please try to visit our facebook page or join us for a zoom chat on Thursdays!
- We shall be rolling out a variety of fun activities and 'tutorials' covering a widen range of things from crochet to dance to hula hooping and baking the perfect sponge! (if we can find a volunteer who can achieve the last point). as well as acquiring new skills you can meet other carers and learn from each other what coping mechanisms work for each other.
- We shall continue to update and improve our information resources here and on the Where You Stand website
- We shall continue to lobby authorities and agencies to let them know what carers are telling us matters to them- you're not alone so let us know what you feel is needed
The future will pose many problems as well as opportunities- if you want your voice to be heard then join us and have your say!
