Just some of the words our families used to describe their experiences at the Families for Families Day in 2019. Our next Families for Families Day is on Saturday 4th April – but why not make it a weekend – the Family Activities Weekend is 3rd to 5th April 2020. The venue is in the Midlands at Whitemoor Lakes Activity & Conference Centre nearLichfield in Staffordshire and you can book now!.
On the Saturday, we’ll have our most impressive yet line up of medical professionals. They will take part in the invaluable Question & Answer Session, but we’re planning sessions on Growth Hormone Treatment, Heart Problems, Speech, Language and Feeding.
And it’s not all strictly medical – we’ll have a session on Learning which will focus on practical strategies for parents and carers, Stress & Wellbeing and, following on from the very successful session in 2019, Adulthood in Noonan Syndrome, plus more family stories which have been so well received at the last couple of Families for Families Days.
Bring the family – there will be organised activities for those aged 18 and under, both inside and outdoor on Saturday including something different for the older teens. We’ll also be welcoming Ruby Doo back who went down so well last year, to throw a party for the younger ones on Saturday evening. We may have some additional drop-in sessions on Saturday evening and on Sunday morning when there will also be the opportunity for families to take part in some of the outdoor activities which the centre is so well known for.
