A support worker from the team will be in touch with you to discuss alternative support where possible.

If you would like to speak to someone please contact the service on (024) 7663 1835 or email laura.griffin@cwmind.org.uk and we will arrange to call you back as soon as possible.

Social clubs – Due to reduced staffing numbers, closures of the community venues we use and the current need to adapt our ways of working to support children and families, we have unfortunately had to make the decision to suspend social club sessions until further notice.

It is with a heavy heart that we do this, as we know how important the routine of sessions are for many of our children, especially with the closure of schools and changes across all area of life at this time. We are working on how we can keep getting out community together digitally, it will take us a little time to work this out. In the meantime, we hope to have our newsletter out over the next week with as many resources ideas for home learning and strategies for sustaining well being at home where so much is uncertain and rapidly changing.

We will continue to offer telephone, video or email support where we can, please bare with us as the team work to contact all families referred to the service to support where we can.

Peer support groups and training sessions – We will be in contact with all parents/carers who attend our peer support groups to offer further digital options for connecting as a community and times where you will be able to access a live chat with the team for advice/support.

Our information sessions will now be held as webinars and will be bookable via our Eventbrite page.

Make sure you are on the mailing list here.

Watch this space for interactive quizzes for children (and grown ups!), drop in peer support sessions online and live streaming of our parent/carer information sessions.

We hope that you are as well as you possible can be, that you are able to keep positivity to the maximum and that this time also provides some opportunities to try things different as we navigate the uncertainty of the coming weeks together.
