A vital support service for families with disabled children in the north east will hold a launch event in the borough.
The Caudwell Children Family Support Service will be officially launched on Monday, October 28, at Pathways4All in the Tim Lamb Children’s Centre at the Rising Sun Country Park in Benton.
The event aims to promote the new service to parents and partner organisations across the region in a bid to provide practical and emotional support to families caring for disabled children.
As part of the service dedicated staff will co-ordinate home visits and activities to ensure families access the support available to them and get the additional support they need to cope with the pressures of full time care.
The launch event will run from 11am to 2pm.
