Hello, wonderful parents and carers of Manchester!

The pandemic has brought additional challenges to our families over the past year. Some of us feel more isolated; many of us find that we are not able to make time to do something for ourselves. As much as our children have been affected by Covid-19, we parents and carers have also become more vulnerable; thus, maintaining our own mental health and well-being has never been so important.

We have partnered with 4CT Limited to deliver “Parent/Carer Well-being Packs” to parents & carers of children & young people with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) in Manchester. We hope that, with these, you will be able to treat yourself and exercise some much needed and definitely well-deserved self-care.

The bags will include:

  • Travel crossword book
  • Adult colouring book + Coloured pencil set
  • Bath bombs
  • Chocolate hearts
  • ESPA body lotion
  • ESPA hand lotion
  • PUKKA flavoured tea
  • Nourishing shea butter masque
  • Love Hearts candies
  • Heart pillow
  • Hot chocolate (packet)
  • Puzzle cube
  • Stretchy de-stressing toy

The packs are free for parents & carers of children & young people with SEND in Manchester.

We’re sorry to say that all the bags have now been allocated.

Please watch this space and/or follow us on Facebook for announcements about future projects.
