PIN provides valuable training and information on the various issues of concern that trouble parents, such as:
- Understanding and managing your child’s behaviour
- Effective communication with schools
- How to produce a communication passport
- The use of power-of-attorney and guardianship
We also send out a regular newsletter letting members know of forthcoming PIN events as well as any other information, both local and national, that is relevant to supporting people with disabilities.
We provide opportunities for parents and carers to take part in relevant consultations and we provide the statutory agencies with vital feedback on how families are actually experiencing life with a disabled son or daughter.
We have two part-time coordinators, one in the east of the region and one in the west, who deal with connecting families and the day-to-day running and on-going development of PIN. Check out our About page to find out more about PIN.
