    Parent Carers and their families looking after a young person aged 8-18 years old with ADHD get a regular break from their caring role through weekly support groups. The younger people are also supported by our workers/volunteers. This group encourages the children to meet new people, make new friends with the same disability and have fun doing some great activities within/outwith the centre.
