OUR EVENTS

This year we have organised trips to local leisure centres, archery lessons, water sports, a course of outdoor activities, a trip to the theatre and regular cinema trips for the children. For the families we have had an Easter egg hunt, a Summer fair, day trips to local parks and monthly coffee mornings for all the family with more workshops for the children. We run both our own events and work with others organisations to improve access to current community facilities. We are just about to start running a BSL choir for both children and adults and restart our BSL courses for children and adults.

FOR ALL EVENTS

It is essential that all of our events and activities are enjoyable, welcoming and inclusive to all and we rely on all of our families who attend to ensure this is the case. For all our family events parents will be expected to be responsible for their children at all times to ensure we have a respectful, safe and inclusive environment. If there are any concerns or anyone does not feel this is the case please approach either staff or trustees who will always be available at all events.

FOR NEW FAMILIES

If it is your first time attending an event or you don’t know anyone else attending, please let the organisers know and they will link you with another parent as part of our buddy system.

FOR STAFF

If you are available to work at an event, please email Emma at emma@fcdc.org.uk, stating the event you are interested in.
