Jack's Club ~ Support Groups
Jack's Butterflies understands how easy isolation becomes the norm for families dealing with ill children. We also appreciate the very real need in finding support outside of the "safety" of our homes and widening our environment and inviting others to become part of our lives. In providing regular meet-ups, Jack's Butterflies' support groups will provide opportunities to share experiences, seek advice and build on existing support networks. We will offer an array of different activities that will hopefully appeal to all our Rare Families.
We aim to create avenues for families to create friendships with other families going through the same challenges. Providing a place these families know is a safe place they can attend on their bad days, their good days and everything in between.
Because mums, dads and siblings all have different coping mechanisms, we will offer groups just for mums, just for dads, just for siblings, sometimes for couples and sometimes for the whole family. Our bereaving families need different supports, so we will offer different groups for them.
We will also aim to run informal sessions and support groups for carers/support workers/hospital staff who may potentially be affected by the loss of a child who has impacted on their lives.
