I first heard about SNAP through Faye's school. I attended a few drop-ins and workshops initially. What really helped me was to discover that I was not alone and that there were many other parents/carers just like me, with one or more disabled children to care for. It also brought home to me that there were also many parents/carers who had children with far more severe and complex disabilities than I had and that they really did need, as well as me, the support that SNAP offers.

SNAP, to me, has been invaluable, as I was not aware of what help there was available to me until I was introduced to SNAP.

To some, the holiday plays schemes and week-end trips are really a life-line for them to have some respite.  SNAP leisure activities offer Faye a chance to be independent, to experience different activities and meet friends and socialise in a safe and secure environment. She enjoys her days and recently went on an activity week-end which she loved. They offer me an affordable means of respite which I feel confident that Faye is cared for properly.

The workshops and advice sessions I have attended have given me a better understanding of Faye's difficulties and how to manage them effectively. The recent Challenging Behaviour Workshop was very informative and emotional.
