Groups and Support
Peer support is really important to POSCH as we believe parents and carers are the experts in their own lives.
Parents come to the groups to share knowledge, experiences as well as providing emotional, social or practical help and support to each other.
Our groups are open to any parent or carer living in Hambleton & Richmondshire. Please see the Training & Events page for dates and times of our upcoming groups.
“As I walk through the door at the POSCH sessions I can feel the stress lift from me & I know the next few hours I will feel safe & supported. I leave feeling energised & inspired”
