We have put together a list of Facebook Groups that parents/carers may find useful.  Some of these groups are closed so you have to request to join and once this is approved you can view and comment on posts as well as posting to the groups page yourself.  Please familiarise yourself with the group rules and protocols as this is important.

If you know of any other groups that you feel may be useful to other parents/carers then please let Becky know:administrator@homestart-basildon.org.uk or phone 01268 550300
