Following the success of The Joshua Tree Saturday sessions, we have decided to continue funding these family support groups for a second year. The Joshua Tree provides much needed support to the whole family including the patient their siblings, parents and grandparents. The Saturday sessions are a chance to meet with families going through the same experiences and it’s a chance for the youngsters to have some fun but also receive practical and therapeutic help when it’s needed.
