TIKVA. Parents4Parents

Tikva is the brainchild of parent-carers of adults with learning and/or physical disabilities from large and/or low-income families living at home.
Tikva is a two-pronged organisation providing essential support and respite for both, the parent-carers, as they age, and their loved ones.
Tikva is here to prevent parent-carers from burn out by improving their quality of life as well as those of their adult children with disabilities.
Our activities include:
Regular support groups, stress management and relaxation sessions for parent-carers as well as occasional day-trips, social evenings and pampering experiences.
For the adults with disabilities we run a popular residential summer scheme and day-trips during school holidays. Also an after-school club and a weekend club with live entertainment to keep these adults happy and fulfilled in a secure environment.
We also offer annual short breaks for the whole family and advocacy services.
Finally we have a resource lending library and regular newsletter to inform members on topics of interest, pertinent information and tips etc.
