Space 2 Talk – drop ins and coffee mornings for parents

If you are you the parent or carer of a young person with a disability or an additional need you are welcome to join us at our Space 2 Talk drop-ins.

Please note that since the Covid-19 lockdown started, Space 2 Be Me had to stop its face 2 face drop ins and family activities. However we have successfully started offering virtual support groups via Zoom and our one to one family support service is available by Zoom/Teams, telephone and email. When official advice allows, we are offering face to face meetings with individual parents soon by appointment only. If you need any help please contact support@space2beme.org.uk.

Space 2 Talk is a one stop shop for support in any area of additional/special needs, with a family support worker on hand to provide a listening ear over a coffee. Please note that no formal diagnosis is required for access to this service.

To give you an idea of what we “normally” do here is a summary:

——————————————————————————————————————–

Take a break, have a mug of tea or coffee and meet other families on a similar journey.

Each session is attended by a Family Support Worker, who is available to help with specific issues you may be facing, either at the drop in, or via a one to one appointment afterwards.

You can access our family support workers at sessions in various venues across our region. These are the current dates:
