What is the Turning Tides Support Network (TTSN)? THIS IS!
As parents/carers, we want to create a support network at Turning Tides to accommodate our needs:
What respite do we want?
How can we make this happen?
What do we want to do to give us a break?
As a start, we decided to change the TTSN monthly meetings into a different format and this was our first result!
We shared a home sewing day with lunch and lots of chat (some of the things we create will be available for purchase in our online shop) . We also learnt new skills from each other, such as:
We decided to make this a quarterly event and will ‘go with the flow!’
Would YOU like to join us too? Come for the whole day, or just pop in for an hour or so. Let us know if you have any ideas. Do you have a skill you could bring to our group? Even if you don’t, we’d love to see you at the next meet up. The next meeting is always written on the TTSN website page!
Last of all, we now have a ‘social space’ on Facebook so the conversations can continue outside of our meetings! The group is a closed group and we respect each other’s privacy 😊
