On 1st May 2020, the government updated guidance to provide an FAQ of Coronavirus questions and answers relating to schools and education.
As we are not able to hold our support groups, we wanted to ask what parent carers in Bristol would find helpful:
The BBC have created a support resource on their BBC Bitesize page for parent carers with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) children to help you and your family during the lockdown.
All Short Break providers are identifying vulnerable families and referring them to the Inclusion Service (with families’ permission) as well as keeping in regular phone contact with families of CYP who attend their service.
Families are strongly advised to keep children at home to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus and keep vulnerable children and adults safe. If you cannot, or are a key worker, please contact your school for support.
In line with current government guidance on social distancing and the closure of schools, the SEND stay & play sessions will not run across Bristol during the Easter holidays.
Flamingo Chicks would like your input to get a snapshot of how Coronavirus is affecting families of disabled children and what Flamingo Chicks can best do to support.
Following the current government advice, and to protect the more vulnerable members of our community, we have come to the reluctant decision to suspend all of our Support Groups and Participation Meetings until further notice.
For the latest updates on our Support Groups and meetings please visit our Facebook page. Other resources regarding COVID-19 and local support can be found in this post.
