Venue
Grand Station

Sun St, Wolverhampton WV10 0BF
For their 11th Annual Conference CBIT will focus solely on families - they are at the heart of the service that the charity delivers, and families are the main stakeholders of the services that professionals across health, education and law provide. The day will focus on the IMPACT ON THE FAMILY, including families and young people talking about their personal experiences: Emotionally
  • Stress on parental relationships
  • Sibling relationships – from sibling to carer
  • Coping with the new normality of their changed family
Financially
  • Increased costs when you have a child with disabilities
  • Coping with the change in circumstances, what help and support is available
Practically
  • Getting a good night’s sleep
  • Housing – adaptations and moving home
  • Transport and leisure activities
Education
  • Learning to cope with and perhaps challenge the system to meet the needs of all children in the family.
