On the 19th of November Candlelighters launched the Family Network at The Square. The Family Network is based upon the giving and receiving of support from people who are going through a similar journey or experience.
At the launch, families were able to take part in lots of activates. The aim of the launch was to identify exactly what our families want from The Family Network. For example, how often groups should take place, where they would like to meet and what type of support they need.
It was also a fantastic opportunity for our family members to meet the volunteers behind it all! The response from families was amazing and feedback regarding their suggestions and wishes have helped shape the Family Network.
The Family Network has activities and meet ups planned in locations across Yorkshire. These can be seen below.
If you are interested in attending any of these events, please let The Square know on 0113 322 9283.
