Dads and Male Carers Support Group: Online Zoom Event

We began a monthly support group for male carers in July 2018. This was a result of feedback we received about the importance of offering support for males in a way and at a time of day that suited them. The group is now well established, and attended, and will continue to run throughout 2020.

What has become obvious is that dads and male carers of children with special needs have the same needs for sharing the joys and challenges of parenting in a group where there is understanding and acceptance; a place and time where there’s no unsolicited advice or suggestions given.

Aims of the Support Group:

  • Provide a safe and supportive environment to share experiences and explore the unique challenges faced by dads of children with additional needs
  • Establish support/social networks for dads

Please email pburton@parentingspecialchildren.co.uk if you would like to join the event.

Thanks to funding from The Garfield Weston Foundation this event is at minimal cost to Berkshire dads and male carers. Other areas of PSC work receive no funding at all, for example our Helpline, so we are always grateful for any donations however large or small.
