Bexley Voice for Special Needs Children

Bexley Voice is a voluntary support group set up to allow the opportunity for parents and carers to express their views and input into the planning and delivering of special needs services and meet with others experiencing similar challenges.Bexley Voice membership is free to all.  You can visit the website or contact them using the details below:Tel:  07512 409936Email:  bexleyvoice@hotmail.co.uk Website:  www.bexleyvoice.org.uk Facebook:  Bexley Voice for Special Needs ChildrenJoin Bexley Voice BME group and get support to ensure your voice is heard!!

As much of our support is currently delivered via our private parent/carer Facebook group, we encourage all parent/carer members to join.  You can do this by completing the form on our website, or emailing Frances at bexleyvoice@hotmail.co.uk and asking her to give you access. Please note, you need to ensure you provide the email address that is linked to your Facebook account rather than any other email you use.

As our Facebook group is secret, in July we launched our new Facebook Information page

Bexley Voice – Parent Carer Forum Information Page – can be found by anyone and will be used to let people know what we have done and what we will be doing. It will not duplicate the information that is provided in the Bexley Voice Group and we hope it will mean we are more easily found by a broader group of parents and others who may need to know about us. 

 

Youth Action Diversity Trust (YADT)

We have just updated all of our Behavioural Support Leaflets, please see below for your information.

YADT Behavioural Support Service: Being a young person in today’s world is challenging and here at YADT, we understand that some young people need a little extra support to help them get a positive start in life or overcome obstacles along the way.

We work with young people and their families to understand Autism and ADHD behaviours, helping them to develop strategies for a calmer family life. We help young people with the difficulties that affect them, these can be a number of issues such as anger management, social anxiety, improving confidence, enhancing communication and dealing with stress and loss.

Our friendly support service is for young people aged 5 to 17 years and can be delivered as one-to-one support or family support sessions. We charge £40 per session for this behavioural support and all our meetings take place at the North Cray Neighbourhood Centre, in Sidcup, which is neutral ground for most families. 

YATD have lots of useful courses for parents - take a look!
