Wednesday 14th November 7 – 9pm @ St Mary’s Community Centre
We are really excited to welcome two of our play workers to speak at our next parents’ meeting. Alex Bredice (Physiologist) and Rachel Eddershaw(Occupational Therapist). Alex and Rachel have worked at ACCT’s clubs for a number of years and the theme of their presentation is ‘Empowerment and Feeling Listened to…’
Their presentation and discussion will be reflective with a focus on supporting mental health. To include their roles within ACCT, their professional training and the benefits of ACCT, and the influences of media, social media and mobile phones. They will look at ways of managing these areas positively.
There will be a presentation of everything that ACCT achieved in 2017 – 2018 as part of our AGM.
Please join us for this informative evening and meet the ACCT team. Everyone welcome, new members can register on the night, refreshments provided.
