The service provides a programme of information workshops and leisure activities to enable disabled children and their siblings to improve independence.
The Children’s Wellbeing Service is funded by BBC Children in Need and all the services we provide are free of charge.
We deliver a series of three different workshops, aimed at young people and their families. We also provide coach trips six times a year. The current parents wellbeing workshop programme can be found here.
The workshop programme covers:
Hopes and Ambitions: What do you want to be when you grow up? What are you good at? What do you enjoy doing?
These workshops are aimed at helping young people identify their hopes for the future and supporting them to overcome difficulties relating to their impairment. Workshops focus on self-management, learning how to cope and transitioning into adulthood.
Visual Communications: Are you struggling with communicating effectively with your child? Do you need some help and guidance?
We help you as a family to explore new ways of improving communication between you and your child both at home and at school. These workshops will demonstrate practical ways of communicating with your child, introducing the use of visual aids, signing and social stories.
Sibling Hangout: Do you want to meet other young people who have siblings with additional needs? Have fun? Make new friends?
These events allow young people to talk and share experiences with other siblings in similar situations in a relaxed environment.
In addition to our workshops, we provide families with the opportunity to enjoy days out to attractions across southeast England by coach. All trips are free of charge and previous excursions have included Chessington World of Adventures, Thorpe Park, Godstone Farm and Diggerland.
