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.

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.

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:

You can also catch one of our Family Support workers at other drop ins run by partner organisations where we regularly attend. These include:

  • Cranbrook – A Space 2 Be Me Family Support Worker attends as a guest every other month at the Weald Parent Support Group facilitated by IASK. Find out more.
  • Tunbridge Wells – A Space 2 Be Me Family Support Worker attends as a guest at the ASD coffee morning organised by the STLS in Tunbridge Wells. Find out more.
