Here’s an important event taking place in Walsall next Thursday morning (15th February 2018) at the Royal Hotel, Ablewell Street from 10am until 12pm that will be essential for anyone who cares for children or young adults with learning disabilities or special needs in the local area.
The event is being organised by the wonderful FACE Walsall, the Walsall Parent Carer Forum, and old friend of the blog and carer herself Jo Yarnall got in touch to explain – I’m a bit sad for her as I didn’t know of the event until this morning and it’s awful to see the struggle they’re having with local media.
Please can I ask the lovely folk here to spread the word about a Special Educational Needs Information day I’ve organised as I’m sat here in floods of tears and feeling let down yet again
I organised one back in October and contacted Walsall Advertiser who even organised a photographer to take a photo for us, on the day the photographer never turned up ( didn’t let us know ) so I took a photo and they promised to put it in, it never happened, so I said I’d organised another one for February, sent the details again and had an email back to say they would get it in, looked through the paper today (we get ours delivered Friday) and yet again it’s not in…
Our group is working so hard to try and find the vunerable children and young people and trying to reach out to parents who are at breaking point as they don’t know what is out there to help them.
So if anyone can help spread the word
