Freedom to Fly is a support group for parent carers who have a son or daughter aged 17-25 years old. The group is run by a parent carer and aims to meet the emotional and practical support needs of other parent carers as their children transition into adulthood.

Objectives of the group

  • To provide a genuinely supportive friendship network, that can provide emotional support at times of crisis and companionship at all other times.
  •  To share useful information and experiences about services & equipment that affect the lives of their grown-up children.
  • To offer a forum for discussion on matters that are of concern to the group. Where appropriate, to arrange for outside speakers to talk to the group.
  •  To be involved, as user representatives, in consultations with all relevant organisations across Birmingham

The group meets on the last Friday of each month at 11am. To access the group please click here. The group is private so you will need to request to join.
