About this service

From toddlers to young adults, we’ve got everyone covered. Our forum is all about empowerment. We organise meetings and training workshops that equip parents with the information and skills they need to be superheroes for their families. Whether you’re a regular or an occasional visitor, if you’re caring for a child or young person with special needs in Camden, you’re welcome to join.

Our diverse community includes parents, foster and adoptive parents, grandparents, adult siblings, aunts, and uncles—basically, anyone who plays a vital role in a child’s life. Our facilitators are parents who understand the joys and challenges of raising children with special and complex needs.

It’s a chance to connect with other parents, share your experiences, and give and receive feedback on local matters that matter most to you. We host parent workshops during term time that cover everything from handling sleep issues, preparing for adulthood, and tackling challenging behaviour.

We also arrange casual, relaxed meet-ups like our Walk & Talk and Cook & Eat sessions.

We collaborate closely with local education, health, social care, and leisure services to make sure that services for disabled children and their families in Camden are top-notch. We put parents’ views at the centre of the action by consulting with them at meetings, through surveys, and at local events.

So, join us in making a positive impact. Together, we’re shaping the future of services for children and young people with special needs in Camden.
