The Vitiligo Society announces second Parent Support Network meeting

We are excited to announce the second meeting of The Parent Support Network (PSN) – a support group dedicated to children, parents and carers of children with vitiligo.

Denise Oduntan, one of the PSN leaders, shared why the network had arranged a second meeting:

We received great feedback from our first event and had a great time meeting the parents, grandparents and children that joined us. Based on some of the learning from our first meeting, our next meeting will kick off with 15 minutes for the children to share their experiences and allow for sharing and some fun games.

Parents can then stay on and talk about some of the challenges or questions they may have. 

We continue to look forward to meet you all and continue to grow this event and our parent and children network. 

The event is free to join and take place on the 24th of July at 5pm BST.

The event will be split into 2 parts:

5pm – 5:15pm: 15 minutes dedicated to children, giving kids the opportunity meet virtually and play a couple of games together

5:15pm – 6pm: 45 minutes dedicated to parents & carers of children with vitiligo to share their experiences and create a support network together.

Register your interest in the event by emailing us: parentsupport@vitiligosociety.org.uk

Why not consider joining the PSN management committee?

As part of the launch we are seeking parents and carers who would like to be involved in organising and leading the network – if this sounds like something you would be interested in then please email us at parentsupport@vitiligosociety.org.uk
