Rainbow Bubbles


Connect is a support group that aims to connect local parents/carers of children with additional needs and/or special educational needs.

We aim to provide information and peer support within a welcoming and non-judgemental environment... along with tea & cake!

The group is held every other Tuesday evening, 7-9pm in Café 46.  Parents/carers are welcome to drop in at any point during these times.

What our group members have said...

“This group saved me at what was a very dark period of my life. Parenting an autistic child can be lonely and desperate, but this group gave me hope and friendship and restored faith in Christ’s community of wonderful volunteers.”

“Lovely to be able to meet parents in similar situations, to advise and listen in times of need. Feeling understood helps me to feel less lonely on this complication journey. Sometimes coming along for a cuppa, cake and well- needed laugh is the highlight of my week.”

“Gives us an opportunity to learn and share experiences with others. We are all made to feel cared for and have met new people through the group who really understand in ways that no-one else does. I have a new tribe thanks to this group.”
