In these uncertain times of COVID-19, which we are all experiencing, the fear for families living with a vulnerable child or adult can be absolutely overpowering.
Although we have had to temporarily close our school for children, adults and adult sessional provisions, we still need to ensure that we can support our families remotely via Skype, email, social media and to be an ear on the end of the telephone.
In order to do this the Paces team is:
– providing a Skype Befriending Service for families who are struggling with isolation
– offering home schooling resources to help families to support children with Special Educational Needs and their siblings too
– giving supporting advice for families who are worried about finances and paying bills
– where applicable signposting families to other agencies and charities for help and support
We need help from our local community now more than ever to ensure that we can continue to be here to support families caring for children and adults in these truly challenging times.
Thank you for all your support.
