Afasic local groups and contacts - January 2016 (20.9 KiB, 13,384 hits)

Parents often want to talk to other parents, share experiences and concerns, and get together to help campaign for better services in their area. Afasic has a number of local groups and contacts that would like to hear from you.

Details of local group meetings in Devon (north), Norwich, Shrewsbury, Stockport, Sunderland and Surrey (north).

North Devon

Next meeting: tbc

This is a great opportunity to meet other parents over a cuppa, glass of wine or a pint.

For more information email Dawn Baker.


Norwich

Things are changing at Afasic Norfolk.

We are continuously trying to improve the support we give to children and parents of children with speech and language difficulties and as such we are no longer hosting regular meet ups but are focussing our support on-line. It’s what people seem to want so it’s what we are doing!

We can still be found on Facebook (Norwich Afasic Support Group) but will have a super webpage soon with new links and contacts to help.

Stay tuned folks! Amy and Tracy

Sunderland

If your child has a speech, language or communication difficulty come and meet with other parents and carers for information and support.

Next meeting: tbc

Meetings are very informal with lots of chat, tea, coffee and biscuits! Don’t worry if you can only stay for part of the time, and don’t feel you have to come on your own. If you would like to, come with a friend or a relative. Everyone is welcome – please pop in.

If you have any questions please call Nicola – 07729217595, or send an email to Nicola.

We hope you can join us at the next meeting.
