Parents and Carers


In addition to Skills Training Courses we also provide – ‘good to know‘ sessions for parents and carers of Jewish children, including sharing common concerns, ELKAN courses and information services.

The next Parents courses are starting this Autumn. Please click here to Contact Us and register your interest in attending these free courses.

We have also added in a Directory of services to help parents and carers to find local services for SEND. This is a tool that can help you access the right help and support. Please click here to find out more

If you wish to set up a local event or support group, we are happy to work together with you to enable this. Please contact us for further discussion.

We have added some useful documents (click here to download), from the Special Needs Jungle website which show some pathways. These can also be explained, with support via our Helpline by clicking here
