When Dreams Change is a four-week course that aims to help parents and carers reflect on their experience of having a child with additional needs, and to become more of the person they have been created to be. We have found this course to be of great benefit to parents and carers: 

‘It dared me to dream about things not just for my child who has additional needs but for myself as well.’

‘I can’t pour out to my own children if my cup is empty…it made me go away and think where are the relationships in my life where I feel so safe that I can let my guard down, tell it as it is and know I’ll be accepted…it helped me think about how we can go the distance if we’re real with people around us.’

‘This parent who is sitting next to me they’re feeling the same things that I’m feeling, that really made me feel part of a group.’
