London Children Support

This group was set up in October 2016 and typically has two meetings a year. 


Date Time Location
Sunday 1st July 2018 12pm Trip to London Science Museum
Saturday 29th September 2018 1pm-3pm Central London (Nearest Tube Station: Farringdon) - please contact Amy for address details
Info for general meetings...

The meetings will be informal.  With children's groups we provide activities for children (arts and crafts and some games etc) and get some volunteers on hand to entertain them.  Parents often gather themselves together for more in depth chat!

Cost:  There is no cost to attend this meeting.  But please let Amy know that you will be coming so that we have an idea of numbers.

Who is it suitable for:  Children, Teenagers and Parents.  We hope to run different sessions for each but it depends who turns up.  Please do register your details with Amy so we can plan effectively.

What do I need to do beforehand?  Please email Amy and let her know how many of you are coming, along with everyone's names, and the age of any children coming along (making sure we know which child has alopecia).  It is also helpful for us to know what type of alopecia your child has as well as the extent of the alopecia.

Can I bring my other children?  Yes.  Just ensure you let us know how many of you are coming.

What should I bring?  Nothing, just yourselves!

Important note:  We regret to inform you that there is no disabled access in this building and the room we will be using is up some stairs.  We apologise to anyone this affects.  If this does affect you and you would like to come along to a future meet please get in touch and let us know so we can work on finding a different venue for future.  Otherwise we will keep using this venue as we are able to use it for free.

Finding the venue
Nearest tube station:  Farringdon (on Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan line.  Only one stop from Kings Cross).
Parking:  There is an NCP just on the other side of Smithfield Market.
