Calmer Therapy offers support sessions at 17 Wallace Green every Tuesday morning from 9.30am-11.30am.

The group was launched with a successful event at The Jubilee Social Club in Spittal on Sunday. There were lots of stallholders, tombola and raffle donations and fun courtesy of Animal Antics. It raised more than £350.

The non-profit making community organisation aims to provide, support, information and advice to parents, carers and family members in north Northumberland and the Scottish Borders who have children with additional needs. It will be holding workshops and courses on different topics and intends to organise sensory play sessions and day trips in due course.
