Welcome to the Calder Valley Lesbian Parents Group website! We’re a generally friendly bunch, if we say so ourselves – a group for lesbian parents and their children and for those lesbians hoping to become parents.
This encompasses all kinds of family set ups, including adoption, foster care, respite foster care, single parent families, re-constituted families, families after breakdown and so on. Our only specification is that women who attend identify as lesbians and have a parental/family relationship with the children they bring to the group.
We’re delighted to be able to offer a wider variety of activities in appropriate venues, both during the week and at weekends, both for younger and older children… and we can also organise trips away.
We aim to support lesbian-parented families in the Calder Valley (although we welcome visitors from outside the area), provide networking opportunities, raise issues that our members feel strongly about and liaise with local services.
We do this by offering a range of activities where there are opportunities to meet and talk to other parents, raise issues and work together to tackle homophobia, have fun and talk about everything to potty training to teenagers’ sleeping patterns, or whatever we want. Oh, and we eat lots of cake. And grapes. Grapes are good!
We’re growing, and our site is growing with us – check back soon for updates!
