25th January 2024

The Down Multi-Disciplinary Team within the South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust, in partnership with community organisations, including The Cedar Foundation, ADHD Hub Newcastle, Community Advice, Clanrye, Downpatrick Autism Family Support Group, Carers Support Service and others, are hosting a pilot ‘Neuro Café’.

The ‘Neuro Café’ aims to provide practical help and support to families by bringing together the expertise of local parent support groups.  Staff from various organisations will attend the event in order to offer advice and practical advice about how to access relevant services.

Members of the public are invited to come along on 1 February 2024 from 10.00 am until 12.00 pm in the Sports Hall, South Eastern Regional College (Downpatrick Campus), Market Street, Downpatrick.

Community Health Development Practitioner, Noelle Hollywood said, “This event is a testament to the strong partnership between community, voluntary, and statutory organisations, working together to create a supportive environment for families navigating neuro-diverse challenges.”
