Our team have been busy continuing to support families during lockdown. Friendship groups such as dance, football training and yoga are all being hosted safely online by CDSSG thanks to grant funding from the Steve Morgan Foundation, The National Lottery Community Fund, Garfield Weston Foundation, Baily Thomas Charitable Fund and B & M Community Fund.
Our education advocates have been contacting families, sending out resources and support information and helping education staff to differentiate work.
Parent support get-togethers and training have been replaced with wellbeing courses and Makaton training online for parents and carers. We have even run our pre-school Cheeky Monkeys playgroup online with support from professional speech and language therapist Jane Mullen.
Thank you to all our families for the lovely comments we have received during this time.
