Parents Again Support Group

The Parents Again Support Group is an independent group for relatives who are guardians for a child / young person that is not their own. For example the relative could be an aunt, uncle or grandparent.

The group normally meet on the first Wednesday of every month from 11.30am - 1.00pm during school terms only.

If you would like to join the group to:

  • Make new friends
  • Discuss issues
  • Get information and advice
  • Find out more about today’s education system.

Please come along to the next meeting. These are usually held at The Jan Cutting Healthy Living Centre.

Please note that PASG is run independently from Plymouth Information, Advice and Support for SEND and any queries about the content of this page should be directed to them.
