    Hello Raxa

    It's good to hear from you on the community. Half term does come around so quickly. Can I ask what part of the country you are in and how old your son is? that will give me a better idea of what you can do. Also what does he like to do.

    Warm wishes

    Hello Raxa

    Thanks for replying - was the Support Worker from Mencap part of your son's support package from Social Care? if they were then the funding should be still there unless your son's circumstances have changed. If you would like to discuss this further please email me via the Helpline at [email protected].

    Best wishes

    Hi Vicky

    I am really frustrated, angry, and upset,  my son is 23 years he was at residental placement for 3 years Derwen College Shropshire, finished in placement in July 2017.  He was at harrow college he want there for 2 weeks he did like it there, there was no support for him.  After no help from social worker or SEN team it's been 7 months I haven't found anything for him, his getting isolated, I would appreciate if could help me find Therapiest could work with.
