Parent Support Group: November

Join us online for our November PSG sessions. Our peer-led parent support group is a great place to come to talk about the problems our children face and the solutions that others in the community have found.

Our online parent led support group welcomes new members. It’s a safe place to come and share what has been happening for your children and gain insight, support, and strategies to manage the difficult situations we

encounter as advocates for our sons and daughters. Come along and listen for some key advice and guidance from other parent carers who understand what you are going through. Share the triumphs and tragedies with our parent carer community and leave feeling less isolated, more connected and ready to take on the world again.

If you are new to the group let us know beforehand how we can support you best. It is always OK to just come and listen and we have a chat function if that is easier as well.

November 2022

Join us online on the following dates:

November 1st @ 19:30 – Parent Support Group Chat session

November 15th @ 19:30 – Parent Support Group Chat session

November 29th @ 19:30 Themed Parent Carer Support Group “How to support our children and young people who are blind and partially sighted form healthy relationships and ensure they are getting the right information, advice and education to meet their needs.” 

“How to support our children and young people who are blind and partially sighted form healthy relationships and ensure they are getting the right information, advice and education to meet their needs.”

From friendships at an early age to something more serious when they are older, negotiating relationships can be challenging for our children with little or no sight. Guidance from the Department of Education states that “Relationships Education, RSE and Health Education MUST be accessible for all pupils. This is particularly important when planning teaching for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities who represent a large minority of pupils. High quality teaching that is differentiated and personalised will be the starting point to ensure accessibility.”

Do you have concerns about the vulnerability of your child who is blind or partially sighted when it comes to relationships and sex? Do you wonder how they are being taught in school and if it’s relevant and accessible to them? We need to support our children into adulthood, be aware of the curriculum and how to keep communication around the issues open. This online session will consider how we help our children grow up to form good, healthy, trusting adult relationships.

Join Jane, LOOK staff & mentors, & Karen Holyoak Head of Key Stage 5 and Teacher of Health and Social Care at New College Worcester on Nov 29th @ 7.30 for an online conversation about relationships & #accessible Sex Education.

Mrs Holyoak will share how she teaches students PHSE so that it is accessible, meaningful and appropriate. Sydney May, LOOK Mentor Officer and Life Coach will reveal how she learnt about relationships herself and facilitate discussion with some LOOK mentors around the topic. There will be time during the online session for questions and shared experiences (in a discrete way). To book a place please fill in this online form or click the button below.
