Tailor Ed Foundation Events Update March 2017

Hi all,

We hope this finds you well. We have a date for our regular Dad’s night which is the 23rd of March at 7:30pm. Currently we have a group running just for Dads which is informal gathering, usually in a pub and a chance for dads meet up with other dads who have a child referred to Tailor Ed. Hosted by one of our male project workers this offers dads a chance to relax and the opportunity to build an informal support network. It is important to us that dads feel included in the support received from Tailor Ed. Our next event will be at Clerk’s Bar 74-78 Clerk Street, EH8 9PT. 

We also have our coffee morning coming up on Wednesday with a representative of the Family Fund UK talking to us about the application process and what items you could apply for. We will have Holly Nam, the Family Engagement Office for the Family Fund along to speak to families about applying for grants. Family Fund is the UK’s largest charity providing grants for families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people. Please join Tailor Ed Staff and Holly on the 1st of March from 10am-12pm. This is also a great opportunity for parents to chat informally to our staff and gain some peer support. We will be at CAFÉ CAMINO AT ST MARY’S CATHEDRAL, 1 Little King Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3JR. Please email Fran at contact@tailoredfoundation.co.uk to attend.

We also have our parent workshops coming up. The theme for this is Systems to Support Understanding. These sessions are great for any one who anyone wishing to learn and use several teaching techniques and communication systems that the Tailor Ed team have found helpful in supporting a variety of daily living activities and skills. In this workshop we’ll cover how to design and implement these effectively at home. We will include supports such as sand timers, visual timetables, choice boards and reward charts. We now offer our workshops over two sessions to allow more discussion and time to reflect on what works best for your family. Please email Fran at contact@tailoredfoundation.co.uk to book. This will be held on the 8th and 15th of March at our office 27 Maritime Lane, EH6 6RZ from 10am-12pm.

Best wishes,

Fran Armour
