By your Side virtual coffee mornings for parents of children who have regular hospital visits or stays

Does your child have regular hospital appointments or stays?

If the answer’s yes, then the parent advisers in Contact's By Your Side team would love to invite you some virtual coffee mornings on Tuesday mornings between 11am -12 noon!

We’ve got three virtual coffee mornings coming up on 8 June, 13 July and 14 September where you can talk to our By Your Side team and meet other parents with children in hospital too. Simply book your free place on as many coffee mornings as you like using Eventbrite.

We know many of you have lost face-to-face support during the past year and are struggling even more with the pressures and effects of the pandemic. Sadly Covid has meant we have been unable to attend any hospitals, but we are still here to offer you advice and emotional support. Our team of friendly By Your Side parent advisers can help with your most pressing issues, including benefits – such as Disability Living Allowance payments when in hospital, education, helping your child to sleep, and encouraging positive behaviour.

If you can’t make the planned virtual coffee mornings but would still like to chat with one of our By  Your Side team, please see our website for details about how to get in touch.

Listen to the latest episode of our podcast, The helpful podcast for families with disabled children, where our By Your Side Senior Parent Adviser Ruth shares the team’s top tips for hospital appointment and stays.
