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.

Brilliant day at St Helens Town Hall for the Parent Carer Information Day. Spoke to lots of parents and professionals. Handed out lots of our leaflets and newsletters.

Nice to see some of our lovely group members too, who popped in to see us during their lunch breaks

A big thank you to Listen4change for keeping us going with tea, coffee and pastries.

ADHD, Awareness

Clair was on the radio

Clair was on BBC Radio Stoke last night talking about the effects of ADHD, on the Stuart Georges’s Show… where they were discussing whether ADHD is real, after Peter Hitchens wrote in the Mail on Sunday (27/1/19] about his doubts over the conditions existence.

Having read what Peter Hitchens wrote, I have to say it’s so disheartening that so many people still feel able to write so negatively about ADHD without doing the slightest bit of research. They have no knowledge and no personal experience but feel they can very publicly deny it’s existence.

We would have let you all know sooner about Clair’s radio debut but the radio but the station only contacted Clair half an hour before they wanted her to talk. She did brilliantly and we’re really proud of her.

ASD, Comorbid condition, Parents and Carers

Learning more about Autism Workshop

Today we participates in another interesting workshop with the Witherslack Group at Pontville School. We learned more about Autism which is a comorbid condition of ADHD.

A number of the families in the group have a young person with both so it was a fantastic opportunity to learn more.

The session was facilitated by Anne-Marie from Ideas Afresh.
