There are many ways in which M-CM UK aims to offer support to people with M-CM and their families, our aim is to complement the existing support that is available.
There is a well established international M-CM support group hosted through Facebook which is independent of the charity, you can find out more about joining this group by clicking on the heading above.
There is an active community of parents that work with M-CM UK to organise family days and other opportunities for people with an M-CM diagnosis to meet others.
2017 Family Day at Families United Network, Luton
Date: 11th November 2017,
Families United Network, Britannia Estate, Unit 5, Leagrave Road, Luton, Beds, (Postcode for Sat Nav LU3 1RD)
We are really pleased to confirm that the second M-CM UK family day of 2017 will be on Saturday 11th November 2017 at the Families United Network (FUN) building in Luton. We are delighted to have been able to secure the venue for our exclusive use for this family meet. The building is a safe and fully accessible facility that provides excellent indoor space (perfect for a November day) and we are sure that there is something to entertain everyone, young and old. There are full changing facilities available with a hoist and a great sensory room which also has a hoist. You can see the full range of facilities available on their website http://familiesunitednetwork.org.uk
FUN have supported us by offering the venue at a heavily discounted rate and M-CM UK have covered the full cost of the hire in order to make the day as accessible as possible for families. FUN are also a charity and we feel it would be a nice gesture for families to make a small voluntary donation to FUN if they are able to on the day.
Because we have hired the entire building for the day there is no need to make individual bookings with the venue. However, it would be helpful if you could let us know that you are attending so that we can make sure that we bring along enough refreshments on the day. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that you will be attending.
For anyone that will be planning on staying overnight there are a number of local hotels, including a Premier Inn and booking early means rooms are competitively priced http://www.premierinn.com/gb/en/home.html
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on 11th November.
