  • Two Sides – Indy’s Story

    It was difficult watching my partner deal with her feelings of guilt over not being able to feed our daughter, and although we had been advised all was normal, I felt continual concern over Eva-Rose’s inability to feed - something just wasn’t right to me.

    Children and Young People's Council Meeting

    It's that time again! Our second CYPC meeting of the year and we're finally branching out of CLAPA headquarters! So instead of the office, It's going to be held at Hoxton Hall in East London which will give us a nice change of scenery! We will be doing some important work on the future of CYPC and where we want it to go, so come with you thinking caps on.
