ADHD, Youth Club

Weekly update

This week we held our February day meeting, with the lovely Tamsin coming in to do crafts with us.

Cup of coffee, a couple of biscuits, a lot of chat and crafts…. perfect!!!

Tamsin’s button coasters

Mine wasn’t so much of a coaster tho 😂

We also held our first Youth Club session @ Park Farm Centre. We had 11 children attend. They never stopped! It was loud! There was a very competitive football game at the end… who’d have thought a game was soooo important!

Thank you everyone who came down, it was fun.

The next session will be the 8th March 6.30 – 8.30pm. The youngsters will be deciding the name of their Club and designing a poster.

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!

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.

December 2018 Day Meeting

Our last day meeting of 2018

Lovely to see everyone today, with a few new faces and returning members. The meeting was very very relaxed as our lovely crafty lady, Tamsin, had us making Christmas cards and decorations… sequins and glitter everywhere!!!!

Our very last meeting of the year is on Wednesday 19th December, 6-8pm @ The Millennium Centre, it will also be a craft session so again very relaxed but if you haven’t attended a meeting before it is a great way to relax, chat and get to know everyone.

Living with someone who is living with ADHD, affects every part of your life and can be very isolating. We know it can be daunting to come along to a group for the first time so these sessions are great as they are fun and relaxed. There is absolutely no pressure and they give you a complete break from your caring role.
