We all know how important it is for our young people to meet with like-minded peers. It creates a sense of belonging, reduces feelings of isolation, and helps maintain positive mental health. Similarly, parents need opportunities to meet with other families who ‘get’ their child and understand their experiences.
Our Festival for enquiring minds runs from 15th – 26th February. There will be a whole array of fantastic presenters on topics of interest to our vPlus community. The sessions will be delivered via Zoom and recorded, allowing people who have registered to catch up later if they miss the live presentation.
We are delighted to say that, with thanks to the Government, Potential Plus UK has received funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, to offer a programme of online courses and our vPlus festival for young people, and for their parents, Free of Charge
