At The Local Carers Network, wellbeing is at the forefront of what we’re working together towards. Our programs and activities are designed to be a catalyst that helps community members reach their goals and fulfill their potential. Learn more about the positive impact we have and join us in bringing about positive change.
Here at The Local Carers Network, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We work each day with families to ensure children and young people have the correct support and environment to meet their needs. Our decision-making process is informed by our members and high-quality data evaluation. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact on all of our pursuits. We are driven by our own experiences, and with a team of volunteers who have lived experience of the inequalities faced by so many people with disabilities, we will work alongside you, to ensure you achieve the desired outcome.
WAYS WE HELP
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
The Local Carers Network is in the business of changing and shaping lives. The work we do as a charity is aimed at providing a holistic approach to solving some of our society’s biggest challenges. We make sure our partners are empowered by creating opportunities for individuals and communities. Our families are what drives us to succeed. We have teams across the charity helping in many ways, from our SEND team who help with all educational needs to our Mental health team who are always looking for new ways to achieve the best outcome. If you think we could do more we would love to hear your ideas. If you would like to get involved theirs a place for everyone so please get in touch. Full training will be given which always includes safeguarding training as standard.
SENDIST TRIBUNAL SUPPORT OR EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT
Supporting families through the process of tribunal, we all know first hand how stressful it can be and we will help you with as much or as little help as you request.
We also help in school meetings or exclusion meetings, our team is fully trained and has plenty of experience. We again can do as little as just take notes or we can give full advocacy. We will always discuss with you what you would like our support to look like, we want to empower you.

SENSORY PLAY SESSIONS
Having fun is the key to success
The Charity has a large area to allow children to play and relax, with lots of play equipment it is ideal for different ages and abilities. All our sessions are run by volunteers so someone is always there to help you if you need it, or you can just take the time to relax with a cuppa and chat with other parents.
Your child does not have to have additional needs or disabilities to attend our sessions.
WEEKLY COFFEE MORNING
Time to relax before the weekend
we provide a safe space to meet others and parents, our Coffee mornings are always fun and a time to destress. we have our SEND team on hand if you want to discuss any issues they may be able to help with.
This is open to all parents, you do not have to a child with additional needs to join us for a coffee or tea, you may just fancy a natter and that's absolutely fine. We love to see new parents.
