The earlier children get support, the more likely they are to fulfil their potential.

Mencap NI's Family Support Team have set up a Parent and Toddler Group.

This will be a drop-in group for families of children with a learning disability or significant developmental delay who are aged 0 to 3.

We aim to provide a safe, secure environment for parents or carers to come together and meet other families on a similar journey, while giving their children the opportunity to explore and learn through a range of activities and play.

Date, time and location

The drop-in group will take place from 10am to 11:30am on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 19 February 2020
  • Wednesday 11 and 25 March 2020
  • Wednesday 8 and 22 April 2020
  • Wednesday 6 and 20 May 2020
  • Wednesday 3 and 17 June 2020.

All sessions will take place at Mencap Centre, 5 School Road, Newtownbreda, Belfast, BT8 6BT.


There is no registration cost for these sessions.

However, we appreciate if you can make a donation of £2 per family to support the work that Mencap does for people with a learning disability, their families and carers, including the Parents and Toddler Group.

You can make a donation online here.
