[email protected] is a parent led opportunity to share information about all aspects of supporting a child or young person with PMLD.
This may be parent to parent or we might arrange for professionals to come in and talk through a specific issue.
It always involves cake and biscuits and sometimes it’s just a chance to meet other families!
If you have any ideas for [email protected] please let our deputy head Sarah Clarke, know.
We regularly post news, updates and events on our Facebook Page
If you would like to join in our family discussion, we also have a closed Facebook Group. Please contact Sarah if you would like to be added.
