Talking About Tomorrow
Although in Glasgow, this upcoming event is free to attend and booking is now open for a conference on transitions next March, Talking About Tomorrow – preparing parents and carers for transition at age 16.
This event is specifically and primarily for parents and carers, with a limited number of places available to professionals working directly with parents and families.
The conference is free for parents and carers, and Contact can help with travel and/or care costs if necessary so people can attend. Please note however it is aimed at parents and carers only – unfortunately we can’t provide workshops or appropriate care facilities for young people on this occasion.
Topics covered include finance, guardianship and legal protection, rights and responsibilities, community based learning/work opportunities, safeguarding your own physical and mental health, and developing assertiveness and negotiating skills.
