Junk the JargonJunk the Jargon

We are suggesting that parents and practitioners have “Junk the Jargon” boxes in their offices and in meetings.  Whenever jargon is used, a donation must be made to the pot.

The funds can then be passed to a good cause (so not only do parents and practitioners actually start speaking in a language we all understand, funds are raised for worthy causes)

Celebrating Dads

Celebrating Fathers

Celebrating Fathers

Bringing Us Together are working with Include Me TOO to reach as many families as we can and to be able to showcase fathers and father figures with their disabled children.

For the week leading up to Father’s Day, we will be welcoming and collating father’s/ male role model’s stories, photos or videos that celebrate the unique relationship of a father and their child.

Please do get in touch with us and share your stories on our Forum, via Twitter or you can contact us through our Facebook page

Are you notified of any consultations?  Are you consulted?  Do you have the chance to participate?

Do you believe consultation makes a difference or do you think it is ineffective?

Ineffective consultations are considered to be cosmetic consultations that were done due to obligation or show and not true participatory decision making.  

We’d love to know what your experiences of consultation are.

drivers seatFamily Rights, Citizenship and Mental Capacity

Bringing Us Together believes that everyone has the right to communicate and be supported in making informed choices and decisions with a circle of people around who know, respect, value and understand them.

We are holding an event in July to listen to a group of parent’s voices and their stories.  We will be working with larger organisations to bring these experiences of families of what works for them around the Mental Capacity Act, and what does not.
