PSC has set up a number of support groups in response to feedback about the lack of ongoing support available, and subsequent feelings of isolation experienced by many of our families.
Parent support groups are a great way to meet other parents for practical and emotional support. Groups generally offer:
- Opportunities to socialise
- Information and advice
- Emotional and moral support
- A listening ear
- A regular meeting place
We have the following support groups:
Community Support Groups: groups in local communities, funded by the People’s Health Trust, for parent/carers of children and young people with additional needs.
Kinship Carers Support Group: for family members who are caring for children who cannot be cared for by their birth parents (e.g. Grandparents, Aunts/Uncles, Family Friends).
Adoptive Mums Support Group: for adoptive mums who are parenting/caring for children who have experienced developmental trauma and/or have special needs.
Dads and Male Carers Support Group: for birth fathers and male carers (Adoptive Parents, Foster Carers and Kinship Carers) who are parenting/caring for children who have experienced developmental trauma and/or have special needs.
Maidenhead Support Group for Adopters, Foster Carers and Kinship Carers: for parents and carers of children who have been through early life trauma and thus have special needs living in the Maidenhead area.
