If you’re going to Sling It I hope to see you there – please say hi. You’ll most likely find me at the Up Project stall or collecting Carriers for Kos (which you can drop off in the family area (near the children’s play areas) or wandering around looking at all the lovely slings!
Find me on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Connect-Emotional-Education-637889949648340/ or at my site http://connectemotionaleducation.weebly.com/
Sling It is taking place on Saturday 2nd April at Salford University 10am – 4pm for more information see http://slingitnw.com/
For more details about the Up Project see http://theupproject.org.uk/
The mission of The Up Project is to ensure that children who are affected by disability, serious illness, depression, domestic abuse or poverty are given the opportunity to experience the benefits of being carried in a baby sling or carrier. These benefits include but are not limited to improved health, wellbeing, safety and relationships.
We achieve this by providing the child’s family with an appropriate sling or carrier and the skills and knowledge to use it safely and comfortably.

This is a project set up to help refugee families who are having to carry their children long distances as they flee the conflict in Syria. A carrier is sent from our families to theirs.
