Problem Solving Toolkit Workshops

nav-toolkitOur Problem Solving Toolkit Workshops are designed to help families access the services that their children need, and are entitled to.

Our popular 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. The toolkit aims to unpick these problems and to develop effective strategies for resolving them. You can download the Toolkit here.

These free workshops will use the information and resources in our Problem Solving Toolkit to help parents and carers, and the professionals who support them, to access the services that their children need. They will be delivered by a Cerebra professional together with a parent/carer who has first hand experience.

Each workshop lasts for around 3-4 hours and includes a presentation on the toolkit and case studies for group work. There will also be the opportunity to discuss and share experiences. The workshops are provided free of charge.
