All our support is offered free of charge and we now have both virtual and face-to-face options available.

Face-to-face support groups – term time only:

  • Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, 10.30am-12pm – Chandlers Café, 40c Drift Road, Clanfield, PO8 0JL

We ask that you do not attend a face-to-face group if you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 14 days, although this is stricter than current government guidance our aim is to keep our volunteers and other families attending the groups as safe as possible.  We would encourage anyone attending to take a lateral flow test before, wear a mask and maintain social distancing where possible.  Thank you.
