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.

Self-care is any activity that we engage in to take care of our mental, emotional and physical health. Some people will be able to perform self-care tasks independently while others will need high levels of support. In this section we look at the most common self-care tasks and provide some simple tips to help you and your family to navigate them better.
