Project Coronavirus Update

East Midlands Full Day Workshops

After a long wait through a painful pandemic, we are thrilled to announce that we are now in a position to safely deliver our face to face, educational workshops for parents of children with OCD. We have designed this workshop to be COVID safe, to ensure that those who are vulnerable to COVID-19 feel comfortable throughout the day. The host and co-host will take a lateral flow COVID-19 test a couple of days prior to the event, as well as providing disposable face masks should anyone wish to use one. Upon entry, there will be complimentary hand sanitiser available, as well as on the table(s). If you have any questions about COVID-19 and our parents’ workshops, please email parents@ocduk.org where we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Online Webinars
Although the primary purpose of the online webinars was to offer some form of education and support as we wait for the workshops to re-open, we still plan to deliver the webinars monthly so that parents who are unable to travel can still take advantage of our project.

You can find more information on our webinars here; https://www.ocduk.org/parents-webinar/

The Parents Education Project is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund for parents of children with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.


We are offering parents the opportunity to attend a FREE full day workshop to help them understand OCD in an informative education programme whilst waiting for treatment to begin. The workshop will include education on the following:

  • What is OCD
  • How OCD is treated
  • Pathways to access treatment
  • What parents can do to help

The delivering of this workshop will send parents away better educated, informed and empowered to understand their child's OCD.

Please note that the project hosts are not professionals and will not be offering therapeutic advice. The project is hosted by service users who have an in depth understanding of OCD, and the aim of this workshop is to offer relevant and helpful information to restore hope for a recovery focused future.

The project is funded for parents with children aged 5-18 (CAMHS age) suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Check the map opposite or display the calendar to see when and where workshops will take place. We will be adding more locations across the East Midlands throughout 2022. Please note, although the workshops are free to attendees, they are not free to the charity. Please make sure before you book a place on any of our workshops that you are definitely able to attend, and if for whatever reason you are no longer able to attend, please make sure you let us know to prevent us paying for a delegate that will not be at the workshop - thank you for understanding.

Course Locations

We will be delivering between 12-15 workshops throughout 2021, starting with Nottingham. If you are interested in attending a workshop, please revisit this page regularly as we will be announcing new dates and locations throughout the year.

You can also review the calendar to see when future workshops are planned. We will be adding more dates throughout the year.
