Zoom Call Meeting on Wednesday November 4th at 6pm

Hi everyone – We have a request from a family for a Zoom Call meeting of the Transition Group to share ideas on activities during this difficult time whilst keeping safe. So, we will host a Zoom call on Wednesday November 4th at 6pm (begin signing in at 5:34pm). We will also put together a list of resources that we can cover at the virtual meeting. Sometimes all our kids/adults need is to meet another friend or 2 and go for a walk at the park or watch a movie. This is a great opportunity to connect with other families in your area as well. 

Please let me know if you are interested in participating by sending email to transitionparents@gmail.com so we have a rough idea on numbers. There is no commitment so if you think you might, please reply, and we can send you the Link nearer the time. Everyone is welcome! 

Looking forward to catching up with some of you online

October is Here!

October is here and we would ordinarily be gearing up for a re start of our Transition Group monthly meetings. But these are no ordinary times….. Liz and I have made the difficult but necessary decision that we will NOT be scheduling our regular meetings until the end of 2020.

We can still keep in touch. Feel free to email your concerns to us. Liz and I are  available to chat to you on the phone as well (see our numbers below). Or meet up for “distance coffee” if you feel up to it. Also, April Bellia, our tech expert, has offered to host Zoom calls. If there is any topic you would like discussed as a group, or you just want to e connect with families of the Transition Group, please ask, and we can make it happen.

Hope you are all keeping safe and healthy during this difficult time. May 2021 bring some stability and normality back to our lives!
