I found this appeal on another forum tonight and could NOT resist copying and posting it on here, hoping many of you will allow others to read and support it. For those who do read and join, Thank You.

When I went through a bad patch a while back I looked around the net to find a board where I could talk to other parents with children with special needs. I couldn't find one.
Having become involved in a new project in Nottingham where parents go out and meet other parents who have children with recent diagnosis's to offer hope, help and support I felt it a shame that there wasn't much on the net for parents who maybe couldn't get out or who hadn't the confidence to meet and talk to someone face to face. Anyway, to cut a long story short I have built one and it can be found here.

As you can imagine the hardest thing is going to be to get the membership up so that we get plenty of posts going to encourage others to join. I thought I'd post this here in case any of you know anyone who might find something like this useful.

Trainman, is this site just for the UK or can people from around the world join too? It seems like a really good form of support as being a parent, it is hard to get out and about as free time is so limited with children. This must be so much harder with a child with special needs.

I don't really see any problem with you being 'down under' and where I would like to visit. I should think they will be glad to know word has gone round the world. Give it a go and see what happens, after all, you never know until you try or ask them. Good Luck with it anyway.

QUOTE (neil_s_wood @ 10 Jun 2006, 05:48) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Thanks for that Train man. I have some friends who might like to use this site.


Don't know if you have heard of SNAP, http://www.snapcharity.org/ It is a charity which is based in Warley, Essex. (The SNAP stands for Special Needs and Parents)
Not too much help for you seeing as you don't live in Essex but I don't expect that they would mind you passing it on to any friends you have round there, if not already knowledgable of it.
