 Hello,

Kate Collings has forwarded this information which might be of interest to you :

 

LOOK UK is working with Sense and Guide Dogs to hold an event for parents and carers of VI children with complex disabilities.

During this session, we will discuss the challenges that parents/families are experiencing as a result of lockdown - the impact of a child's loss of routine, losing a support network, parent carers having to take on full time caring roles, and families who have lost a lot of respite and face to face support because of Covid-19.

Along with our expert panellists, we will offer a support network and community, and will share relevant resources and sources of practical help.

This webinar will be hosted on Zoom and joining instructions will be sent after registration.

 

Please register to attend by using the following link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/supporting-your-vi-child-with-complex-disabilities-during-lockdown-tickets-103447708882

 

Best wishes,
