Weekly News - 24th November 2021

Welcome to the Sunshine & Smiles weekly newsletter! This is where you will find all our upcoming events and news. 

A big part of our news this week is again the Focus Groups we are hosting online, as well as one-to-one chats for children aged 8-16. This is all part of the consultation we are doing to try and improve the care and services offered by Sunshine & Smiles. We would love it if every family could sign up to one of our focus groups, so that we can hear the views of as diverse a range of people as possible. 

There are focus groups for all different age groups, as well as some more specific ones for those with a dual diagnosis of Down Syndrome and Autism, those with Complex Health Needs and those not of a white European heritage.

Our events this week include Karaoke, Made with Music (age 8-18), Lauren's Speech and Language Groups (Green), Yoga, Early Development (Caterpillars), Sunbeams and Cricket. Don't forget to get booked onto our Christmas party on 12th December, this is your last chance!

As always we are available by telephone and email for advice, support and signposting – please don’t hesitate to get in touch at any time.
