Contact – online workshops

As many of you are aware, in light of the CV-19 pandemic, Contact have been adapting our support offer for families.  We’ve adapted our workshops to online options so that families can continue to connect with each other and gain useful information and advice at the same time.  We’ve also set up new, “Listening Ear” 1-1 confidential phone appointments with our family support advisers for parents who would like to talk to someone for reassurance and practical and emotional support at this time.

These are all FREE for families and we are listing the Workshop dates and “Listening Ear” appointments on our website so if you know a family who may benefit from either of these options please do tell them where to book on.  It would also be really helpful if you can share this information and the links to our website with any colleagues, friends or networks that can help us tell families about the support that we have for them.  The more families we can reach and support the better!
