Additional support is available through groups targeting specific groups, which may require either referral through an agency or self-referral:

  1. POD FUN – targeted support for families who live or work in North Birkenhead or have children attending one of the following schools; Bidston Avenue, Bidston Village, Our Lady & St Edwards, Priory, Portland, Holy Cross, St Marys & Birkenhead Park High School.
    This is a partnership project between us (we are doing 1-1 parent support and delivering Colours, a 5 weeks stress management programme). Open Door Charity – also delivering colours and an opportunity to train as a Colours mentor. Future Yard – Mosh Tots and free family gig tickets. Utopia Project – parental empowerment workshops such as ‘de-escalation training’.
    Tamara and Annie are our support workers for this project, if you would like more info you can speak to the school direct, or complete this short registration form – https://forms.gle/ncEVJ3ewpGvzdPV2A
  1. Peer Support for young people with learning disabilities to access their Annual Health Check.
    If your young person has a learning disability we can help you to make sure they are registered on the LD register and to access their annual health check. This is for young people aged over 14.
  2. Finally we have our Positivi-tea supper club which is a monthly event at Ronald McDonald House Alder hey Childrens Hospital and Arrowe Park with Can Cook/Well Fed. This runs on the last Thursday of every month and provides a much needed hot meal for families staying in the houses while their children are in hospital.
