We will be holding fortnightly parent chats aimed to create a community of support during these incredibly challenging times. Each week we’ll be discussing different themes and inviting guest speakers to join in the conversation. We’ll be involving other charities, too. Everyone is welcome!

The hang out will be facilitated by LOOK and Parent carer Jane Ring who is a skilled facilitator and trainer specialising in the SEND journey.

Come and talk about how your experiences of lock-down and home learning, share your feelings, ideas and coping strategies.

Let us know what questions you may have and what topics you’d like to discuss?

Tell us what information or advice you need – we will get it for you!

Or just come and have a listen and a friendly chat with people who are in the same boat as you.

Be a part of LOOK’s supportive community.

Please email any topics and questions that you’d like covered to events@look-uk.org.

This Girl Can is back with a new advert to encourage women to be active despite the challenges of coronavirus (Covid-19).

The campaign’s new video revisits some of the brilliant women who featured in January’s ‘Me Again’ film and introduces new stories from women who are working activity into their lives and routines as a result of the virus.

A Career in the Civil Service Webinar with TPT

A Career in the Civil Service Webinar with TPT 16 Sept at 5pm

A career in the civil service: what’s involved and how to get into it

Thomas Pocklington Trust’s (TPT) next employment webinar will feature Katy who joined the UK Civil Service in 2006.

Blind from birth, Katy joined the UK Civil Service in 2006 and has worked in a number of policy roles across health, fire, crime, policing and climate change, where she worked closely with the EU.

Martin Sigsworth, TPT’s Senior Employment Manager will be in conversation with Katy, gaining insight into her life as a policy civil servant and discussing the different opportunities to apply to the civil service outside of graduate-level entry.
