Megacentre Rayleigh family support services for the forthcoming term


Parentalk – the Primary Years – a free six week course for parents of primary school age children looking at boundaries, communication, encouraging independence and strengthening family relationships.  This will be held on Tuesdays from 12.30pm – 2.30pm on 12th/19th/26th September and 3rd/10th/17th October.

Parentalk – the Teenage Years – a free six week course for parents of teens (or soon to be teens) and will include discussions on boundaries, communication, staying connected as our child grows, conflict, big pressures/good choices and strengthening family relationships.  This will be held on Tuesdays from 7pm – 9pm on 12th/19th/26th September and 3rd/10th/17th October.

The ADHD group continues on alternate Thursdays from 10am – 12pm on 14th & 28th September, 12th October, 2nd/16th/30thNovember and 14th December.

The Parents SEN forum will continue once a month on a Friday from 10am – 12pm on 8th September, 6th October, 10th November and 8th December.

The Wednesday afternoon Family Fun session will continue from 4.30pm – 6pm on Wednesdays in term time for children of primary school age. 

On the third Monday afternoon of the month, from 4.30pm – 6pm, we are starting a new SEN session in our softplay structure for the families who attend our Wednesday Family Fun but also for any other family who have a child with additional needs.  The dates for these will be 18th September, 16th October, 20th November and 18th December.  

On Tuesday mornings in term time, from 10am – 12pm, a parents coffee morning in partnership with Cara Parker, the Family Worker for The Parish of Rayleigh, this is primarily targeted at new parents who have a baby or toddler – the idea is to promote friendships and cut through the isolation new parents can sometimes feel with a new little one.  It is free to come to and held in the Megaplay softplay area.  This starts again on 12th September.

The ASD – Alpha Sigma Delta – group for girls aged 11 and above on the autistic spectrum continues this term too, Thursdays 7pm – 8.30pm at The Megacentre,  in partnership with SAFE.  The dates for the girls group are 21st September, 19th October, 16thNovember and 14th December. The parents meetings will form part of our Friday morning Parents SEN forum as detailed above.
