Peer-to-Peer Support

Accessible Online and In-person safe spaces to offload and feel supported

"Virtual" Cuppa & Chat

Our workshops are often really focused on information gathering for those who attend,
but sometimes we just need to offload.

Our Cuppa & Chat events for parents and professionals
are just the place for a chat and a rant.

Our team is on hand to help you and provide advice, but you will also be
surrounded by like-minded people who ‘get’ you.

It’s free to attend, too!

So book your place, pour yourself a cuppa
(or glass of something nice!),
get comfy and join us!

In-person Cuppa & Chat

We are delighted to bring our highly regarded Cuppa & Chat to 
our Sunshine Community Hub in Derby.
We’ve created a safe space for carers, parents and professionals of Children with SEND to get together and support each other.
Teas, coffees and cold drinks will be provided.
BOOKING IS REQUIRED – spaces are limited.

In-Person Learning

Workshops at our Sunshine Hub in Derby
Join our advocates for the day as they guide you through the EHCP application process. They will explain the key legislation relating to the EHC needs assessment process, so you understand the legal test and the information you need to evidence in your parental request letter.
The day includes both training and a practical opportunity to make a start on your letter alongside our advocates who will be on hand to answer your questions.
Our expert advocates will train you in all you need to know to get that application written and underway with your local authority, all in the comfort of our wonderful Sunshine Community Hub in Derby.

Community feedback about our webinars...



I love that I can attend the workshops now that they’re held online. I commit to 2 per month, and I cannot believe the amount of knowledge I now have! I feel so empowered in advocating for my child, and I’m seeing such a difference in the way school approach things as a result! Thank you Sunshine!”

“Without the Sunshine Support Legal Workshops we would be in a very different place right now. The knowledge we have gained (on this and other Sunshine courses) has enabled us to be robust in our challenge of our LA. You’re all fantastic and we’re so grateful we found you.”

Parent, 2019



“I attend your webinars regularly, it fills a huge void in SEND training for me as a teacher. I have made enormous changes in the way our school operates as a result, and we no longer have behaviour policies but an amazing toolkit for anxious children which has improved learning for the entire school! Thank you for all that you do!”

Teacher, 2020
