Dads group meetings are held in cafes or community rooms around the borough once every half term and speakers often attend sessions to share their experiences of working within the field of special needs. The speakers can be anything from social service workers, teachers, SENCOs, local politicians or parents.
The venue for the next Dads group meeting will be: Le Delice, 114 Hoe Street, Walthamstow E17 4QR. There will be refreshments available and time for you to ask any questions that you may have.
The next Dads groups will be held on Wednesday 29th November from 6 to 8 PM. No booking required.
