Special Needs Community was set up for the well-being of families especially parent carers. The physical, emotional and mental well-being of parent carers is important to us because we understand that when they take care of themselves, stay healthy, doing activities that they enjoy and that are fun, it can make it easier to cope when things are difficult.
We know from research that parents of children with a learning disability can be twice as likely to experience high stress levels as do other parents. High levels of stress can have a negative impact on your well-being.

But it is important to do these things to look after yourself. Read more about other ways you start looking after yourself-read our blog HERE
