03-07-2024 Coffee morning drop in at the Family Hub

This drop-in coffee morning session will be from 10 am - 12.30 pm, on 3rd July. 

This is one of our regular drop-in sessions which take place at the Ponders End Youth and Family Hub, 129, South Street, Enfield, EN3 4PX.

Members of the Our Voice team will be on hand at this session and once every month to listen to your questions and issues and point you in the right direction to resolve the issues you are facing. Or you can just take the opportunity to offload a bit and have a chat with other parents who experience some of the same challenges as you, over a cup of tea or coffee.

See the flyer for this event here.

See our booklet here for more information, including details of what the hubs are and what support they offer.

Practical information:

The hub is located at 129, South Street, Enfield, EN3 4 PX.

Some people have reported problems with getting to the hub using SatNav. It is best to look out for the Oasis Academy School which is opposite the hub. You may find that once parked you are by the side entrance of the hub – you will probably need to go to the South Street entrance to get admittance to the building – please walk around the building until you get to the front.

These events are aimed at parents and carers rather than children. If you do need to bring children with you, please note that you will be responsible for supervising your children throughout the session – we do not provide childcare or activities for children during these sessions.

26-06-2024 Introduction to Positive Behaviour Support for parents and carers

Our Voice is pleased to offer our 'Introduction to Positive Behaviour Support' workshops for parent carers.

Our first three sessions will be on Wednesday 22nd May, Wednesday 12th June and Wednesday 26th June, and all will run at the Cheviots Children's Centre from 10 am to 12 noon.

See details on our flyer here

All places must be pre-booked via Eventbrite here

Cheviots can provide creche facilities and/or an interpreter if you need one. Please make sure you let us know when you book your place. 

The sessions aim to provide an understanding of Positive Behaviour Support to help families to prevent and manage behaviours of distress by creating an environment that minimises the need for these behaviours. The outcome should be to improve the quality of life for the child/young person and their whole family. 

We will look at how families can work with the whole network of people around their child/young person (for example school staff, professionals in social care settings etc) to enable a consistent approach around the child/young person. 

The training will be run by expert members of the Our Voice team who have training in PBS and lived experience of using the techniques with their own children. 

Please note that this session will not include a detailed Q&A session to explore individual scenarios about your child's behaviour - but you can also go along to one (or more) of the monthly PBS drop-in sessions at Cheviots to discuss these questions and challenges with professionals from the Cheviots team, and Our Voice team members with personal lived experience. See details in the flyer here. Next sessions will be on Fridays 7th June, 5th July and 6th September 10 am - 12 pm.
