My name is Jennie Everhard and I am the Family liaison worker here at Valley. I cover our Bramhall site and also our satellite provision in Romiley. I was a TA here for 8 years before taking on the role of Family liaison which I have been doing for just over 2 years.
I can offer support to families in terms of referring to outside agencies, signposting and parent workshops. Over the course of the year I hope to put on some training/workshops for parents on topics that come up repeatedly in our families, these include continence, sleep, behaviour and communication.
At Valley we offer a befriending scheme to parents who feel they would benefit from a listening ear. Four of our parents are trained through Scope to befriend individuals in need.
I take a lead on our early intervention strategies such as 1-1 sessions with our link social worker and also our 1-1 consultations with Healthy young minds and Community Learning Disability Team. These are ran every term and every 1/2 term.
I also run our parent coffee mornings every half term and our annual pamper morning for parents.
Please do contact me if you’d interested in any of the above or if you feel I can help in any way.
