Special Friends - Update!
Special Friends is a club for families identified as having a child with additional needs, in and around the Amber Valley area.
Their playgroup is held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month term time 9:45am - 11.45am at Belper Children’s Centre, Alder Road, Belper, DE56 1LP
The club now welcomes families with older children with additional needs as they have a thriving online private support network as well as the occasional evening/school holiday get together from which all can benefit.
Finally, you may be able to help them. They are looking to identify parents or part-time/retired professionals who may be interested in volunteering with them to support their play sessions. If you are aware of someone with a few hours a month to offer who has either a child or young adult with a disability of their own or experience of supporting or working with children with additional needs they would love to hear from them. They are very fortunate to have the support of a wonderful team of volunteers but are looking to strengthen that team further. Volunteers benefit from being part of a warm and strong support network of their own.
