Our Problem-Solving Toolkit aims to support disabled people and carers, as well as their families and advisers, who are encountering difficulties with the statutory agencies in relation to the provision of health, social care and education support services. This toolkit aims to unpick these problems and to develop effective strategies for resolving them.
Since its launch, lots of families have benefited from our hugely successful Toolkit and for many, it has become an invaluable resource.
To help parents and carers, as well as professionals, get the most out of the toolkit we have introduced workshops to assist them in using the information and resources in the toolkit an to assist in trying to access the services that their children need.
The workshops are delivered by Cerebra and a parent or carer of a child with a brain condition who have first-hand experience of accessing services. As these workshops take place in smaller groups, there is plenty of opportunity to share experiences and interact with others.
The feedback from the workshops that we have already held has been extremely positive and some of the comments include:
- ‘A very interesting and informative workshop.’
- ‘The friendly approach and delivery.’
- ‘Working out solutions and finding out about the law, so that you cannot be fobbed off.’
Everyone who has attended the workshops has agreed that they found them extremely useful.
If you are interested in having a free workshop for your forum, syndrome support group, charity or advice service, then please contact Beverley Hitchcock on firstname.lastname@example.org.
