As a charity that supports children from across the Southeast, we appreciate it is not always easy for families to come to us.
One of the new services we are able to provide is Outreach Support, this can be in the family home, in a nursery or childcare setting. We work with parents on a range of issues inlcuding play, behaviour, sleep and sensory issues, as well as assisting with forms and benefits, EHCPs, funding access.
Our Outreach Worker will work with the whole family, ensuring that all children are involved in play and supporting them on their journey as they as a family come to terms with the diagnosis their child has been given.
A parent whose son benefits from our Outreach service said "We appreciate the expert help and advice we have been given by Carol Meadows, the Charity's Outreach Worker. Her home visits are excellent and our son has really enjoyed them. We have also learned a lot from her in-depth knowledge about what other services might be available for our son, in West and East Sussex."
Over the past year we have been able to provide 275 hours of support to our families in their own homes and at their child's daycare or nursery setting.
We are delighted to be able to offer our outreach services to those who would otherwise struggle to get such support. If you would like to book an in-home session please contact a member of our team.
