CYGNET Parenting Support Course

A parenting support programme for parents and carers of children and young people aged 5-18 with autism, written by Barnardos and delivered by Solihull Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS) Autism Team Specialist Teachers, who have been trained by Barnardos to deliver this course.

Parents of autistic children face the usual challenges of parenting and quite a few more. Attending Cygnet gives parents and carers an opportunity to develop their understanding of autism and look at practical solutions to support their child.

It also provides the opportunity to meet other people in a similar position and hear about their experiences in an informal but supportive atmosphere.

How do I access the Cygnet Course?

Speak to your school SENDCo and they will contact their named SISS Autism Specialist Advisory Teacher for the next set of dates. You will need to be available to access all 6 sessions to be allocated a place on this course. There will be a maximum of 12 families on each course, with no more than 2 people from each family. The SISS Autism Team will then contact you directly if there is availability on the next course.

A new segregated route into town centre which protects pedestrians, joggers and cyclists has been shortlisted for a national award.

A spokesperson for SMBC said: “The 3km Active Travel route along the to Solihull town centre, incorporating , uses Department for Transport funding which was made available in response to the reduction in car use during the pandemic.

“The innovative design balances the needs of users on the busy corridor by reallocating road space to create a segregated lane, with a physical barrier using wands and orcas, for cyclists, joggers and walkers. Space for the active travel route was created by removing central hatching and reducing lane widths, but no road lanes were lost in the creation of the route.”

Solihull Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Infrastructure, Cllr Ken Hawkins, said: “I’m really proud of this innovative new active travel route and I’m pleased that it has been shortlisted for the Active Travel Scheme of the Year Award at the national Highways Awards. While I acknowledge that some people don’t see the benefits of the scheme, I am starting to see more and more people using the new route to travel actively into the town centre.

“We have listened to the concerns expressed and will continue to monitor the use of the route. As a result, we have created more signage, additional lines and lane buffers and we have smoothed out the gradients by the bus stops. There are still a few more tweaks to be made over the next few of weeks but I think we are nearly there now.

“This is very much a pilot scheme for Solihull, but we need to be experimental if we are going to reduce the use of polluting motor vehicles on our roads and encourage clean air alternatives. The more people that can be encouraged to walk, cycle or jog the better for our air quality and of course the health of the people who make those changes. It is simply not sustainable to continue as we are with polluting vehicles using finite oil resources. We need to try new ways of travelling and this new route complements other pilot schemes across the borough, such as bicycles for hire, free and low cost cycle training, walking and cycling groups in order to meet our Net Zero Action Plan.

“Lastly, I would add that confident cyclists can still cycle in the road lanes. The new route is about offering a safe, segregated alternative for less experienced cyclists who would like to cycle safely but don’t currently have the confidence to cycle alongside cars driving at speed.”

The Active Travel Scheme of the Year Award takes place in London on 19 October.
