Drop-in mornings for Lollipop parents and older members

Lollipop has been without a meeting space for some time, and we missed the way parents and older members used to be able to drop in to see us! Being able to drop by to have a chat with us or Cheryl, our Parent Liaison Officer, was a really useful and valuable way to provide support to Lollipop families.

We looked into ways we could offer this support again and were delighted to launch NEW monthly ‘drop in’ sessions at York & District Deaf Society (YDDS) in March 2023. We continue to meet at YDDS every month, running our session alongside the ‘Deaf Cafe’ which is also hosted there. We have a separate space but you are welcome to join in with the Deaf Cafe if you’d like to….for more info on that, please email Annalee Green at: annalee.green@york.gov.uk

Whether you are an older member of Lollipop, family of a young member, a carer or a friend, you are welcome to come along to our drop-in. You’ll have the chance to chat to others who might have similar experiences to you, ask our staff any questions, or simply relax with a hot drink and enjoy a chat amongst friends. Our Parent Liaison Officer, who is both an English speaker and BSL user, will always be on hand to help.
