ADHD, Awareness, Fund Raising

Thank you

We would like to thank Morrison’s Boundary Road for letting us bag pack at the weekend. As a small charity we are reliant on being able to regularly raise funds.

The funds enable us to run activities for our families and their children and young people with ADHD

These fundraising days also enable us to get into the community to raise awareness and hopefully reduce some of the stigma surrounding ADHD.

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, Connections, News

DisAbility Support Network

At the end of the week my husband suggested we attend an event at Merseyside Police HQ. I didn’t really know what to expect or whether it would be relevant to our work.

All scepticism was wiped away! The passion and dedication of all those present was so inspiring and reassuring that people really are trying to make a difference.

I was totally blown away by the honest and moving speakers. Especially Mairead who shared her experiences ADHD for the first time publicly and importance of understanding invisible conditions, neuro diversity & disability.

It is so refreshing to hear people talking and speaking out about invisible conditions.

We also heard about Purple Light Up, the Autism card, Princes trust team program, Travelsafe and Our Blue Light.

Purple Light Up

On Monday 3rd December 2018 you may notice a few buildings around Liverpool (and the rest of the World) turning purple!

This is to celebrate and empower disabled people across the globe.

Autism Card

Merseyside Police and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MFRS) have collaborated with the Cheshire Autism Practical Support (ChAPS) and Autism Together charities to launch the Autism Attention Card. 

Sergeant Mike Brumskill spoke about the initiative and how long it took to set up due to funding. This card is designed to help people with Autism Spectrum Condition to receive appropriate support in an emergency situation. The initiative provides training for staff to engage more effectively with people with hidden vulnerabilities.

ADHD workshop

Today a number of the group attended the ‘Learning more about ADHD: Practical Support workshop’ at Westmorland School with the Witherslack Group and the ADHD Foundation.

We recommend all parents and carers to attend one of these workshops if they can. Every workshop we have been on we’ve learned more, picked up more hints and tips and met so many lovely people.
