Welcome to our newly established Family Support Group, an initiative dedicated to assisting families of residents placed at SLS. This group aims to provide a supportive environment where families can share experiences, access resources, and receive guidance to better support their loved ones. Join us in building a community of understanding, resilience, and mutual support.
Our Family Support Group offers a range of services tailored to the needs of families of SLS residents, including:
- Peer Support Meetings: Regularly scheduled meetings where families can share experiences, offer advice, and receive emotional support from others facing similar challenges.
- Educational Workshops: Sessions led by experts, providing insights into managing mental health conditions, learning disabilities, and physical health problems. Topics include coping strategies, navigating healthcare systems, and understanding treatment options.
- One-on-One Counselling: Access to professional counsellors for personalised guidance and support in dealing with the unique challenges faced by families.
- Resource Sharing: Provision of comprehensive resources, including literature, online tools, and local support services, to aid families in their caregiving journey.
- Advocacy and Guidance: Assistance in navigating social services, legal rights, and entitlements related to disability support.
- Social Events: Organizing events to foster community bonding, reduce isolation, and promote wellbeing among family members.
This group is committed to empowering families with knowledge, emotional support, and practical tools, ensuring a supportive environment for both the families and SLS residents.
