The Exeter Parent Carer Cafe was set up to provide social opportunities and support to parent carers of children with additional needs here in Exeter and the surrounding areas. At present the Cafe runs on a Tuesday and a Thursday morning at the Wonford Community Centre, in the Phoenix Suite and all parent carers are welcome to attend. Children are welcome to attend and to help keep them entertained we have a small selection of sensory toys and a dark den.
For parent carers that have children with additional needs and may be coming to terms with their child’s diagnosis and/or day to day life, the group provides real support and advice. Furthermore the cafe provides a place to mix with other adults, talk about things other than care responsibilities and let off steam!
There are always biscuits, often there’s cake and of course tea and coffee.
If anyone would love to come along but is feeling too shy or anxious to do so, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line and we can come up with a plan to ease you in gently, but we are a friendly bunch!
Days and Times:
10 -12 am Tuesday Mornings weekly (Term time only)
10 – 12 am Thursday Mornings weekly (open all year - but part of the community cafe in the centre)
