MyTime groups provide a special space for parents and carers of children under the age of 18 who need a higher level of care than other children. This might be because of disability, chronic medical condition, or other additional needs including developmental delay.
MyTime provides all the benefits of peer support, but with the addition of a skilled facilitator, who ensures groups run smoothly, that they accommodate a variety of experiences and communication styles, accommodate members at different stages of adjustment to a diagnosis, and adapt to new members joining the group.
Groups aim to:
- empower parents
increase their general wellbeing
increase their confidence and success in their parenting role
help children and young people to thrive
