This session, taking place on Thursday 27th July 2017 starting at 10.00am at Cerebral Palsy Midlands is for all parents, care professionals and for those with disability. 
 
This 'Looking Forward' parent & carer group session is an informal discussion about legal issues relevant to those affected by cerebral palsy, including Education and Healthcare Plans for children, access to community care for adults and legal help when things go wrong. Ann Houghton (http://www.anthonycollins.com/why-choose-us/meet-our-team/ann-houghton/), a solicitor at Anthony Collins Solicitors in Birmingham, will be visiting with her colleague, Nsiem Akhtar, a social worker, to talk about a wide range of legal issues including access to health and social care services (http://www.anthonycollins.com/who-we-help/individuals/community-care-claims/) and help when someone has been injured as a result of negligence (http://www.anthonycollins.com/who-we-help/individuals/medical-or-clinical-negligence/).

Today the new 'Looking Forward' support network group organised by Sociability Care and Cerebral Palsy Midlands met at the CPM centre in Harborne for an informal chat over tea and cake about how future meet ups and the group would be shaped moving forward. The group felt it was key to have a focus at the next meeting around self-care, health and well being for carers. We agreed that we need to be strong and health both physically and mentally to be caregivers and help others in our roles. The next meeting will take place on Thursday 9th February at 10.00am and we will look for someone to perhaps come in and show us a method we can use to look after ourselves, whether that is through meditation, breathing, tai-chi or exercise.
