Let's Play Together (Fridays 1-2.30pm)
Let’s Play Together offers well resourced play opportunities for children, their carers and their siblings. Led by members of our SEND team, this group gives families the chance to share their experiences, and learn from one another. Staff can also offer guidance on how to access other agencies or services.
Parents of Children with Additional Needs (Mondays 10-11am)
This is a group to support parents/carers who have children with additional needs. Having a child with additional needs can impact on the whole family, and therefore Pen Green aim to provide a safe space (in a safe environment) with a crèche provided. Consistent group leaders use a person-centred approach to ensure the parents' voices are heard.
