Hello and welcome to your Newsletter for the week beginning Sunday 22 April.

We're proud that, on Tuesday, ADHD Richmond will be taking part in the first All-Party Parliamentary Group at Westminster (Val is representing us)

On Wednesday we'll be highlighting ADHD at The Emotional Wellbeing Board which will be discussing the CAMHS Transformation Plan (Amy-Lou is representing us)

Here are some events for you to attend ...



27 April: Friday morning DLA/PIP clinics at Me too & Co

KIDS, a local charity, is providing a benefits advice service to support families of children and young people (up to 18 years) to complete the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and Personal Independent Payment (PIP) application forms.  This service covers the boroughs of Richmond and Kingston. Vilma Watt, the Benefits Information Advice and Support Practitioner at KIDS (watch this video), will be holding clinics approximately once every half term.
These appointments are aimed at those who cannot attend KIDS regular clinics on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. They are also aimed at those who have pre-school children or children not in education. Click here to book (you will need to register first if you haven’t already)

We are working closely with RISE to provide a range of events in the future (canoe/kayak is the first). This FREE day starts at 11am with a Mindfulness Yoga and Dance session and then there'll be specific ADHD multi-sports sessions to try out.
The RISE team wants to meet your children to find out from them what sports they would attend. Look out for our banner. See you there!
