School for Parents


Is a Nottingham-based charity that helps babies and pre-school children with motor disorders or motor development delay.  It’s an amazing environment that really nurtures and develops the young disabled child and offers hope and support to the parent. As their motto says “Empowering parents; enabling disabled children”

 I was invited to visit School for Parents after offering to help with a raffle prize for their forthcoming fundraising ball. So off I went for a coffee and to see what they do there.  It was my privilege to do so and stepping outside into the February sunshine afterwards I was in a thoughtful mood.  I tried to put myself in the position of a parent with a special needs baby or pre-school child, desperate for practical help and for someone to understand and support both me and my child, but wondering where to turn.  School for parents offers all that more besides!  During my visit, children were being assessed, encouraged and supported as they played and learnt and achieved milestones (little Theo, standing, unaided whilst his Conductive Education teacher sang songs of encouragement to him.) Even now, typing this, my eyes are misting over as I remember the celebrations of all the parents and helpers there that morning and of course, the joy on Theo’s face as he giggled with pride!

All aboard for some pirate fun!

As a small, local charity, School for Parents is wholly reliant on voluntary donations to fund their work.  They need all the help they can get to raise the £200,000 per year to give up to 40 disabled children the best possible start in life, providing hope and a lifeline for their parents too.  Please visit their web-site and watch their inspirational video to find out more.  Click here to visit the School for Parents web-site.

(Tell them Jackie from A&G Chem-Dry sent you!)

A&G Chem-Dry are delighted to help School for Parents where we can and as I said, one way of doing that is to provide a raffle prize for their up and coming event at Blotts, in Nottingham.

Tickets for the raffle can be purchased from the organisers, even if you aren’t able to attend the event.
