Support groups for parents

As a parent of a child with additional needs it can be an incredibly lonely place, you may have support for your child but who is supporting you? 

We have found sharing our experience/story with other parents going through a similar experience has been incredibly therapeutic. We understand groups are not for everyone and or you may have a great support network already and that is ok... But for those who are interested then please see a list below of links of the support out there. This is not an exhaustive list and as we discover more the list will be added to. 

If you know of any local groups in your area that could be added to this list then please do email us with the contact details;
