Our Virtual Network is held on Facebook and purely for parents and carers, all members who request to join are sent an initial welcome message via messenger from one of our Parent Leads.

In our virtual network you will find:

A closed, secure, confidential place to seek advice/support/strategies

An opportunity to ‘link up’ with other parents in similar situations

A group of mentors who have lived experience and “have come through the other side” and willing to share their knowledge and experience on a 1-2-1 basis

Files, online resources and albums on a variety topics

Anonymous posting if required

Peer support from members who understand and swoop in to support and offer a comforting words

Training opportunities

Webinars, podcasts and latest research information

Regular positive messages

An opportunity to seek advice without judgement or criticism

Reassurance that all members have signed up to the confidentiality poll, so what is said in group, stays in group
