Players Bring Festive Cheer

LANCASHIRE'S PLAYERS and coaches brought some festive cheer to Talbot House on Wednesday afternoon.

Led by Head Coach Peter Moores and captain Glen Chapple, the squad served Christmas meals and pulled Christmas crackers with staff and parents at the Newton Heath based centre.

Mum-of-five Bernie Wood, 75, has managed Talbot House for 28 years having initially used the service after her youngest son Geoff was born with Down’s syndrome in 1978.

As a mum and a care expert, Bernie is proud of the service Talbot House provides and believes the service has a huge impact on the 1,230 families registered.

Established as The Peter Pan Centre in 1978, Talbot House is the only parent support group in Manchester run by parents for parents of children with learning disabilities.  Bringing a unique sense of what parents can aspire to; Bernie has a motto “to get mam and dad’s head OK and the kids will be OK.”  This means giving parents whatever they need and this includes support with benefits, housing, education, social services and most importantly, we offer much needed emotional support.   

Parents receive respite and support in a safe environment where they can laugh, cry, identify with and support each other through the sharing of personal experiences with honesty and acceptance.  Services offered include; emotional support, pamper and alternative therapy, information about money and benefits, breaks for carers and advocacy.
