ADHD, Children, Clair’s Parents, Families, Young People

Laser Quest

One of the nice things about the group is that we take our ADHD children, young people and their siblings out for fun activities. These get togethers have proved to be so valuable, as they get to socialise with others who are just like them. They get to socialise, form friendships and give each other support. They get to fall out and MAKE UP! So they get to learn valuable social skills.

Last Saturday morning we went to our local Laser Quest Centre. We were joined by 16 children for three games. As usual our little tribe did us proud. Yes they were loud but they were really well behaved and everyone joined in.

It also gave our parents and carers a chance to unwind, catch up and have a coffee.

Activities, ADHD, Children, Families, Young People, Youth Club

CPMP Youth Club

In my previous blog entry I mentioned that the committee had been out and about last week.

Well I can finally tell you all… we were out looking for a venue for a new service we are organising. We found one that is perfect.

I can now announce that we will be trialing a Youth Club for children and young people with ADHD.

The venue will be the Park Farm Centre Carr Mill (click here for map).

The first session will be Friday 8th February 6.30-8.30pm.

The club is part of our membership so therefore is free to our members children and young people with ADHD and their siblings.

The session will have a small cost of £2.50 for non members but please be aware we will require proof of diagnosis or being on pathway.

Parents and carers will be required to stay on site (tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided).

We are planning various activities for the group and Clair is very excited about planning a tuck shop!

ADHD, Meeting, Parents and Carers

January Evening Meeting

Nice to see everyone at the evening meeting. We had a good catch up, with all our news and plans and check to see how everyone was after the festive period.

As you can see from the picture above our members love their new T-shirt’s!!

On the subject of t-shirts, the committee has had a fantastic response already. While out and about last week, we were approached and asked about support for parents and information about our group (all because of the message on the back of the shirts!).

The topic of our meeting was anxiety and ADHD, we had a really good talk about the subject and how it affects our young people and how other family members.

Hope to see you all next month x

ADHD, Meeting, Parents and Carers

New Year, New Start!

Firstly Happy New Year! Hope everyone survived the holidays.

Our first Parents and Carer meetings are:

Wednesday 16th January 6pm – 8pm

Thursday 24th January 12.30pm – 2.30pm

All meetings will now be held at The Millennium Centre

These meetings are relaxed and informal, usually between 5 and 10 people from all walks of life. You don’t need to book, please just turn up.

Living with someone who is living with ADHD , affects every part of life and can be very isolating. Coming to a support group to share coping strategies and meeting people who are dealing with the same sort of issues as you is supportive and motivating.

Come along to meet new friends, share information and have fun!

All meetings are confidential, no judgements are made and no issue is too delicate.

If you have any questions or worries please do not hesitate in contacting us.
