One of the best things about our group is the wealth of information that our members have built up through the years. We are always willing to offer helpful tips and advice where we can. We suggest that if you have a specific problem or question that you either email us via our contact page or post on our Facebook page – you’ll be amazed at the speed you’ll get some helpful comments and advice. The Facebook group is a closed group so any questions will only be seen by parents who have probably experienced the same issue that your question relates to.

We would also suggest that you look at the following links to other organisations that can help with things such as benefits, health, education and social care.

https://www.kids.org.uk/wakefield-early-support-and-advice

KIDS is probably the first port of call and they will be able to redirect you if necessary to the appropriate help.

The Local Offer is the site which is run by the local council and offers help on Education, Health, Social Care, Things to do, Activities and lots more.
