An informal support group that welcomes parents, carers
and extended family members of any child with SEND
(with or without diagnosis)
Sally was one of the original founders of SHIFT and is the chair of the committee. She is mum to Ben and Ruth and is also a SENDIASS advisor. She dedicates so much of her time to helping our members and without her, Shift wouldn't be the supportive group it is today.
The lovely Jo is our vice-chair. She's full of laughs and kindness and is so welcoming to our new members. She's mum to 4 children and also spends her time volunteering at The Barns Cafe in Abingdon.
Introducing Becky, our fabulous treasurer. Always there with a smile to cheer you up! She's mum to three children, a primary school teacher and all round lovely person who is so generous with her time to all who need it.
Jules is mum to Marcus and Charlie who both have special needs. She spends her days supporting local organisations and charities, looking after her family and singing!
Helen and Carol are a winning combo, co-ordinating refreshments for our Shift meetings and helping us organise some extra special events for our Shift families! We know that a cuppa and some cake is an important part of Shift and we really appreciate all the effort that goes into facilitating this!
