Caring for someone can be a bit daunting at times. Often wonder if things could be

better? Of course, there is always room for improvement in everything we do and here are a series of workshops that can really help make a difference to our daily lives and to our families. This series is aimed at parent carers who wish to have fun, meet other parent carers that want to make life easier and learn new strategies that can make a very real difference.

LPCF proudly presents Hil Gibb to run these monthly workshops on Zoom for parents on the LPCF membership.
See the events page on the LPCF website for more details or email to book your place.

Please encourage parents you work with to join LPCF, as the earlier we can support them on their journey the better outcomes for the whole family in terms of engagement, signposting, information & support. It also gives LPCF a bigger voice in Lincolnshire to help improve the provision of services for families.

Please also encourage other professionals you work with to join our professional membership so they are kept informed too!
Our leaflet for parents has been updated so if you need any to give to parents please let us know. Thank you for your support.
