Family Friendship Groups
Our two hour, multi activity sessions give families the opportunity to relax, play together and meet others facing the same challenges.
Running fortnightly in Craven Arms, Oswestry and Telford these sessions have something for everyone with sport, play and creative activities running side by side through each session/
Not all super heroes wear capes.
This project gives these unsung heroes of our caring
community the opportunity to meet
others siblings in their local community, once a month.
Enabling them with the support of the team to relax, to have fun, to take a break and to talk with others that
understand about the highs and lows of being a carer
In addition to the monthly meeting, we go “Super” Social as often as we can and give the “sibs” a well earned treat.
Provides our young people with additional needs the opportunity to spread their wings and gain some independence.
Running to a varied term time and holiday
programme the project gives those in Year 6 and above the opportunity to travel and
experience activities with the support of our Enable Team, but without their families / carers.
Building confidence and resilience, gaining valuable life skills and developing heathly peer relationships.
We appreciate that not everyone is ready to join in with activities and how scary and isolating this journey can be.
We are therefore developing a new range of services to allow those outside of the Empathy Active Membership to access support from the organisation and their peers.
The first of those services to go live is our new Facebook group
Empathy - Community
The aim of the Facebook group is to create a mutually supportive online network for family members to
connect, celebrate, discuss, share information and support each other.
This group is open to all and will remain separate from our Active Members Facebook group.
Our Facebook Page and Twitter Account will also remain for those who simply wish to hear our news.
