Charlie’s Way is a group set up by a local resident, for parents and carers of children and young people with additional needs and disabilities. They have had a wide range of speakers and it has enabled access to a wide variety of services.
Charlie’s Way will be celebrating its second birthday in April 2017. After last year’s afternoon tea and fundraiser raised£450 for sensory boxes for each year group at the local primary school Norwood Primary, keep a lookout for this year’s celebrations!
The Charlie’s Way group has hosted several one-off awareness and knowledge sharing events which have proved very popular for both parents, professionals and local schools.
The PDA Awareness event in June 2016 was attended by over 30 parents and professionals including many local schools.
The event not only raised awareness but also heard from many local parents with children with PDA and was an experience and knowledge sharing with advice on accessing local services.
September 2016 Scope Sleep Awareness Event was very well attended and addressed sleep issues which are very common not only for the children with additional needs & disabilities but also their families
More one-off events will be coming over the next few months.
