Coffee Morning Wednesday 10am

Free Session

“Drop in” for a chat at our Wednesday morning, Coffee Morning. You can ask questions to staff and trained volunteers about any issues you are having. Our coffee morning also provides an opportunity for carers and parents to share their experiences and connect with others in the group. We often have special guest coming to talk to us, for eg. the local Fire Brigade and the local Police has visited us.  

I like the coffee morning because there is always someone there to answer my questions and help with my problems. You always have someone to talk to
