We understand that committees and meetings are not for everyone, and we also need help in other areas:
Helping at events – we occasionally run social events, or attend other groups’ events. It is good to have several PFBA representatives to chat to other parents and to take their details if they want to be on our database.
Attending coffee mornings – we are often invited to attend coffee mornings of special schools or other groups. This is a good way of getting the word out about what we do. This would usually be just a short informal chat with the parents who are there about what we do, and taking details for our database.
Going to the local Child Development Centres – to make contact, often for the first time, with parents of disabled and special needs children, we would like to have an information stand at the CDCs to introduce ourselves.
We are always looking for new good ideas!
