A creative writing group for Grandparents
Changeworks is offering an opportunity for grandparents involved in the care of their disabled or life limited grandchild to join a group to gain emotional support and self-care skills.
A striking 86% of grandparents say their help in looking after a grandchild with special needs is essential to the care of that child, and 96% of parents agree. 91% of grandparents and 92% of parents said there was not enough professional support given to grandparents of special needs children.
You are invited to join a group that will run for six weeks for 1.5 hours each week. The creative writing group will provide you with the opportunity to meet other grandparents, to gain an understanding of how stress can build up and how you can take steps to relieve feelings of stress, frustration or worry. Within the writing activities there will be opportunities to celebrate the joy and share achievements that you notice in your grandchild as a result of your close and regular contact….and don’t worry, you don’t have to be good at writing or spelling or have English as your first language as the letters are your own unless you wish to share them with the group.
