Let us know what events you would like!

We invite you to tell us what type of events and programs you want us to run for you.
As a community,  two years of COVID lockdowns left people wanting to connect but also hesitant to because of the outbreaks.
We feel now is the time to find out what you want for your child, so we know what you mean when you say, you want day events, you want your child to make friends, take part in fun activities, learn new skills and so on.
Please take a few minutes to complete this survey to tell us what we can do to create meaningful and fun ways for your child to thrive.

We encourage you to answer the survey with your child, because we would really like to hear from them too!
