Useful Christmas Information for families

The Change4Life Health and Wellbeing Champion Network have pulled together some useful information to help you get through the festive period. The Christmas Information leaflet contains up to date emergency contact details, information about food banks and low cost meals, and pharmacy opening times during the Christmas and New Year bank holidays.

ADHD Parent Support Group

South Tyneside ADHD support group is run by parents who care for children with ADHD living in South Tyneside.

The group meets fortnightly during term time on Tuesday evenings at Mortimer Community Association.

To allow parents the time and space to relax and to allow the children to get to know each other a youth group for children (aged 5-14 years) with ADHD and their siblings runs parallel to the parent group.

This group is well established and is able to offer valuable support and empathy to families facing similar challenges.

In addition to the fortnightly sessions the group also organise popular monthly family trips and activities. These usually take place on the last Sunday of the month and are either free or heavily subsidised.

If you care for a child with ADHD this is a great way to meet other families in similar situations.
