We just want to connect and let you know we’re planning some opportunities and events to help caregivers come together for the fun of it! They will be around the scheduled discussion sessions this month so you’ll get food for thought and food for the body! You can find the details of these groups below:

LIFT: Foundations For Attachment

The first group have completed a month’s intensive training and the first support/follow up groups are scheduled for early July. Te Tai Tokerau have several dedicated followers of PACE – and already are sharing stories of success of this relational approach to caring for tamariki/mokopuna who have experienced trauma.

Don’t forget to check out our training schedule for June

I’ve got one workshop planned for Kaikohe and three FASD discussion sessions in Kaitaia, Whangārei and Kaiwaka. The discussion sessions are creating the space for caregivers to talk about their experience on the selected topic and discovering new ideas and ways to be for our tamariki mokopuna. Thanks to all who participate and add such value to these meetings.

To register please go to our website. Should you not be able to attend for any reason after registering, could you please send in your apology ASAP to Christine (0800 100 849) so that we can anticipate numbers and cater accordingly.

Kia ata noho, kia mau tonu / Keep calm and carry on
