WFPF provides a support group for parents and carers, where members can talk through their personal issues and get support as part of a group at an informal coffee morning.

We run a monthly autism specific support group for parents and a general Coffee, Cake and Conversation for All for all forum members. We occasionally invite guest speakers to give talks on a variety of topics chosen by members.

WFPF also provides a Dads’ support group run by dads in the forum. They meet twice a term and often invite guest speakers to come along to give an overview of their service.


We have introduced some Walk & Talk meet ups this term (weather dependent).


Walk and Talk Meet Ups:


Walk for an hour and end up at a café.


Tuesday 28th Sept 11AM - Meet at Higham's Park Boathouse at the end of the Lake


Tuesday 7th Dec 11AM - Meet at Walthamstow Wetlands.


If the weather's bad, we can decide whether to continue with the walk (hopefully we will).

If not we go to the café for the whole time!
