Family Development

Made possible from a wealth of experience gathered over four decades serving the North-east we’ve created a Family Resources website just for you.

Brought together by our Family Development team, members of our Neurodiversity think tank and from families sending us their tips and advice we’ve put together a bank of free resources to help you, as part of our valued community, to navigate the day-to-day challenges of life.

Anyone for a game of balloon tennis or lollipop trivia? Here you will find a wide range of activities to try out. All the activities have been planned with fun in mind while still providing an opportunity for learning and development.
