Parents Support Groups

Due to Covid-19, all of our face to face support groups have been cancelled. 


You can now attend virtual support groups via zoom.  Our children's support groups run in the last week of every month as follows:

  • Last Tuesday of the month 10am – 11.30am. For parents/carers with a pre-school or primary school child.

  • Last Wednesday of the month 10am – 11.30am. For parents/carers with a secondary school child


  • Last Thursday of the month (evening group)  8pm -9.30pm. For parents/carers with a child of any age.

*To join the zoom groups, please email Wendy Boorman for the link at


We will make an announcement as soon as face to face support groups resume.

These groups are for families, parents and carers of children and young people, to develop a community network to help each other through difficult times; build friendships and have the opportunity to discuss ideas, concerns and information, talk about the individual challenges faced,

with people who understand and share the same difficulties.


If you would like more information regarding these groups, 

please contact:
