Welcome to Dyspraxia Foundation Youth Facebook group. In order for the Group to run smoothly we have a few ground rules that we need to be adhered to.

We aim for this Group to be a safe place to post, share and chat about your experiences and we will do our best to ensure conversations are appropriate. We are unable to monitor the Group 24/7 but please be assured that it is overseen regularly by Administrators of the Group and members of the Youth Focus Group and posts can be deleted or edited if they are felt inappropriate.

The current list of Dyspraxia Foundation Staff & Trustees whom oversee this group are:
Claire Cripps (Dyspraxia Foundation Youth Information Officer)
Matt Devonshire (Dyspraxia Foundation – Vice Chair)
Eleanor Howes (Dyspraxia Foundation Chief Executive)

If you feel that a post is inappropriate or offending please do contact us at [email protected]

The Dyspraxia Foundation actively promote the use of free discussion within this Group. Keeping comments, ideas,opinions etc in the open allows admins of the Group the ability to monitor and keep users safe.

We cannot stop anyone using personal messages/messenger but we strongly discourage the use of it. We also advise that you are only becoming ‘friends’ with people you know or have met.
We advise also that you do not disclose personal information to other members of the Group to initiate conversation, such as telephone numbers, address etc.

All members of the youth group are advised to stay safe online. There is information on the Dyspraxia Foundation Dedicated Youth website – https://www.dfyouth.org.uk – and online websites, including:

Ground Rules

• No spamming, (meaning no selling of products)
• Members need to be respectful toward one another at all times, i.e. respectful towards another members comments/thoughts/beliefs etc.
• If a member is seen to be disrespectful towards another member or is rude, aggressive or insensitive they will be removed from the group.
