How do I register?

Let us know if there are any issues with transport that you need help with. If you have caring responsibilities which you feel would prevent you or a loved one attending again let us know. We will do our very best to help you attend this event.

How do I pay?

Places are limited especially for accommodation so we appreciate payment in advance to guarantee your room. You can pay your support worker in cash in person when you meet or at a group

You can pay online https://localgiving.org/donation/hdani?emb=X8dS2TyY9b and enter the amount you wish to pay and please make sure you include your name and that it is for the event.

If you have any difficulties with payment just let us know.

What happens if I cancel or don’t show up?

While we understand last minute emergencies can happen, please me mindful that last minute cancellations or no-shows will still incur full cost to HDANI. We will do what we can to help you attend but no shows means valuable resources being lost for example each no show is the same as the cost of 5 sessions of therapy for a family member.

How do I get there?
