Spreading the word across the North

29 June 2022

Last week the HPC team presented the programme to a group of charity workers and NHS staff from across the north of England.

It was great to hear from the Bedford team as they shared their experiences of running the programme. Kerri Rennie, chair of Bedford Parent Carer Forum, talked of the ‘long term impact’ the programme has had. Parent carers are now meeting up to care for each other’s children and to meet socially. Lifestyle changes include a parent carer doing the couch to 5km running challenge and another taking up regular swimming.

Chris Morris, SEND manager for Bedford Borough Council said, “By investing in the parent carer, you’re investing in the whole family”.
