Parent support days
Following on from our highly acclaimed parent workshops, Afasic England will be running a series of FREE parent self advocacy training days this autumn.

The workshops are designed to enable parents to understand their rights and how best to manage relationships with professionals in order to get the right support for their children and young people.
