We are Jump-Start – Finding Your Way Support Group in partnership with Somerset Parent Carer Forum and Home Start West Somerset

We are a friendly and informal parent-lead support group who meet once a month. Here you can meet with other families of children with special educational needs and/or disabilities. We meet on the first Thursday of every month, 10am to 12pm at the Minehead Eye, 1 Mart Road, Minehead, TA24 5BJ with use of the Bounce Monkey play equipment. Refreshments provided.

In partnership with Somerset Parent Carer Forum and Home Start West Somerset.

Our monthly meetings give parent/carers a chance to share information gain practical and emotional support over coffee/ biscuits.

If you have only just found out that your child/young adult has special needs or has been living with a diagnosis for years, it is always good to talk to others in your situation and to feel that you are not alone. Don’t worry if your child/young adult has not been given a firm diagnosis, we welcome all families, diagnosed or not.

We sometimes also invite various professionals to come and attend our meetings both to meet parents informally and to discuss issues of general interest.

If you are coming for the first time, please feel free to bring a friend, a support worker or family member with you. All are welcome!
