Putting the FUN into fundraising!
Both School for Parents and our supporters organise a packed programme of events each year. From Valentine’s balls to sponsored dog walks, pub quizzes to Easter egg hunts, there’s always something fun to get involved in.
Have a look at our Events Calendar for an at-a-glance view of what’s on, or check our Events Listings for more detailed information about forthcoming events. You'll find information about past events in our News archives, and there'll often be photos of events in our Gallery, too.

As well as fund raising activities, School for Parents also organises social and seasonal events such as Christmas parties. These events bring our staff, children, families and supporters together in an informal setting to relax, chat and above all – have fun!
You’ll find dates and details for these events on the Events Calendar and Events Listings pages.
The staff help you to achieve your goals – and you will, if you work at it. They help you get on in life. I enjoy it at School for Parents. Most of all, it makes me feel proud of who I am.

I know for a fact that if School for Parents hadn’t taught me how to perform passive moves on my daughter's limbs and joints, she would certainly have needed surgery by now to correct contractures.
School for Parents will help you find a way to work with your child by using their experience to solve problems in ways you may never have thought off.
The instruction, advice and support we receive from School for Parents has given us the confidence, knowledge and direction to help Sophie achieve her best at home and out in the wider world. We don’t know where we’d be without it. Thank you.

Having the opportunity to meet other parents going through similar experiences on a weekly basis means I feel supported and less isolated in dealing with Gideon's Down syndrome. I've also made some great friends. Thank you.
I feel so grateful to School for Parents for everything they did for Holly. They provided a vital role in the pre-school years. The staff members were absolutely fantastic with the children and as a parent, I always felt ‘looked after’.
We don't know what we would have done without School for Parents. It's a fantastic place for children with various needs and we can't praise all the staff and what they do enough.
Andrew & Alex, parents
School for Parents has given us hope. We came for a visit and have never looked back. I was excited and relieved to find a service that offered hope and support, where my son wasn't going to be the odd one out.
School for Parents is the only place where I feel supported as a single parent of a child with a disability. I would say to other parents…Go and see for yourself!
To see your little one blossoming in front of your eyes is a very rewarding experience, especially in the context of parents' initial worries and fears about their child's growth and development.
When our son was diagnosed with cerebral palsy we were told he would never walk – today he came 4th in his school's sports day race! We can't thank School for Parents enough for everything they have done to support us.
