Feedback told us that our members wanted a course on puberty, sexuality, relationships and age appropriate behaviour. So team 21 Together went about finding the perfect course. This course will cover lots of aspects including puberty, however even those with younger (school age) children will find it useful as it explains all the early building blocks to put in place to make these life transitions easier. This course is solely for parents, carers and home support workers so people can chat about their own experiences and support each other through these sometimes tricky times. Come along for some great professional advice over a cuppa. Limited places available so sign up now.
