Greenwich Parent Voice are proud to be putting the finishing touches to our new Gift and Information Packs for parents of children with special needs and disabilities. We’ve spent the past year working on the packs which are designed to give parents, especially those with a new diagnosis, a much needed boost and clear route to information that can help them navigate those confusing early days.
We have created attractive fabric bags containing leaflets on all the key services, opportunities for disabled children and some special gifts to give parents and carers a little treat. We all know how tough getting a diagnosis can be and this is our way of letting carers know that help and support is out there. The bags are completely free and will be handed out by doctors, teachers and out-reach workers across the whole borough of Greenwich. Over 1000 have already been ordered. GPV is run on entirely voluntary basis and we have gathered some parent volunteers to help stuff the bags and deliver them on and after July 13th.
We’re still looking for extra items to add to the bags to make them a really lovely gift. If you can contribute something or know a local company who may like to donate, please get in touch by email@example.com as soon as possible. Disabled children are a huge part of our local community, and everyone will know a family in need. Let’s get together to support these amazing carers and their fantastic children. Thank you.
