Martha & Surabhi from Family Matters will be hosting a coffee morning for parent/carers who live in the borough of Richmond at Skylarks on Friday 2nd December.
RUILS is a dynamic local user-led charity which employs family support workers to run a project called Family Matters which is a service for families of children aged from one to 25 with a disability or additional needs.
The aim of this project is to work holistically with families to help them find the tools to enable and strengthen their ability to cope with the considerable difficulties they face which could be challenging behaviour, insomnia, isolation, grief, getting respite, being a lone parent, dealing with the system if English is your second language or simply the endless paperwork.
Family support workers will work on a 1:1 basis working alongside the family to help them to focus on the areas that can be improved. This can be by connecting to better services, by being with them for difficult meetings, helping to write letters, challenge assessments, give advice about benefits, finding out about riding for the disabled or which swimming teachers are best for children with ASD, to introduce them to support groups and to other parents who may be going through similar difficulties or by simply listening over a cup of coffee.
Limited Creche facilities are available at Skylarks. Please book this separately onto Stay and Play session.
