Southern Area LPG FYI Newsletter | Issue 53

Welcome to Issue 53 of ‘FYI’.

Firstly, we would like to thank all of our member organisations who have continued to provide programmes, activities, workshops and webinars to support children, young people and their families across the SHSCT area.

We hope this e-bulletin can be of use to your service, organisation or families you work with during this difficult period. Most activities remain online at this time and we would recommend confirming with the provided contacts that they are still running as advertised.

There are opportunities for parents of children/young people with a disability to share their experiences  f schooling during the Covid pandemic, and an opportunity for young parents to have their voices heard for the Children & Young People’s Plan. Please share these opportunities with parents and carers you may work with.

Please also continue to share this e-bulletin with your contacts, so that we can keep each other updated and supported.

Stay safe and stay connected!
