Pop Along Heroes
A supportive playgroup for parents and carers of children with additional needs - Tuesdays 10.30am-1pm
No diagnosis needed – all are welcome, and parents are welcome to attend while their children are at school.
We provide a safe, non-judgemental space for families to meet others on a similar journey into the world of disability; a community of love & support, where families can accompany each other through different stages of diagnosis (or not), hospital appointments, specialists, benefits, equipment, blue badges etc. A whole new world!
This group is helped by a variety of professional people, including:
- Family Voice Surrey.
- Early years support.
- Home Start.
- Home School Link Workers.
- Family Support Coordinator
- Early Support Team.
- Surrey CC.
Billsy helps with refreshments; Christina gives emotional support for the families. Sue & Hannah, both Mums of children with additional needs, are able to offer guidance & advice from their own experience of navigating EHCP and school application processes.
Families can enjoy a light lunch together & there is a variety of specialist toys & equipment for the children to play with, and if appropriate, we will end the session with nursery rhymes.
