Diversity love and unity partnership as heart hands in groups of diverse people connected

How it all began....

It all began over a cup of tea as it often does but this time virtually due to a global pandemic. 

The idea of an organisation which helps to ‘strengthen our relationship together’ was born out of shared values and a passion for trying to make interventions accessible to as many families as possible. SORT's intention is to be an inclusive organisation where every voice is heard and everyone is welcome. To be accessible to families who may not meet the criteria for specialist support or interventions within the local authority or NHS. 

 

SORT's mission is to develop a community that is not only for the time of the intervention but a community that you can come back to for help, support and a guiding hand through our blogs, resources, seminars and other parents you met on your journey.

SORT would like to acknowledge the contribution of Kim Thomson in the initial development of the organisation. Her contributions have been of great value to support in the creation of the vision and the launch of the organisation.

Her area of interest is parenting support, working with parents/carers who are feeling stuck in their journey towards being the family and/or parent they wanted to be. Nicole’s aim in her work is to hear the parent/carers story, how does parenting feel for them right now? What supports in their parenting journey but what makes it more difficult?
