FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS WORKSHOPS
"It was nice to speak to people going through similar difficulties, that "understand', in an environment where you felt you could speak openly without being judged."
"Excellent workshop, useful information & resources to take away."
Can I bring my child or their sibling?
Unfortunately only people over the age of 18 years can attend the workshop as we have no childcare facilities or insurance cover for children under 18.
Can I have more than 1 place?
