New group for parent carers across Selby district

Carers’ Resource is inviting parent carers in the Selby area to its new group, following a successful launch event recently.

The charity has set up a new Selby district parent carer group, which will meet every two weeks on a Tuesday, 10am – 11.30am, at Summit Indoor Adventure, on Scott Road, Selby, with the first get-together taking place on 20th February, 2024.

It comes after a launch event was held for the group at the end of November last year, where parent carers got to know each other over a cuppa. They also filled in a questionnaire to share their views about when they would prefer the group to meet, how often and what it should offer.

The group is for local parent carers who have a child with additional needs (e.g. learning, physical, behavioural, emotional, mental health), whatever their age, and with or without a diagnosis.

Carers’ Resource will be inviting guest speakers/professionals to attend the group to provide information and advice on a wide variety of topics.

Helen Prince, Head of Young Carers and Families at Carers’ Resource, said: “Following our launch event, we know there is a need and desire for this parent carer group in the Selby district.

“This group is a chance to meet other parent carers and support each other, ask questions, take some time out over a brew, and find out useful information from guest speakers and professionals.

“We’re really looking forward to meeting lots of parent carers and running a group that brings parent carers together in a welcoming and supportive environment.”
