Each year TAG holds a 2 day event that brings its members and their families together. We call it the TAG Family Weekend.

With different speakers, entertainment for all ages and some informative sessions this event provides a great opportunity for people to connect, share experiences and learn more about AMC. 

TAG Family Weekend 2017

The TAG Family Weekend takes place on  Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd October 2017.

We will be gathering together at the Holiday Inn, North Coventry, CV2 2HP just off the M6 at Junction 2.

Last year about 13 families arrived on Friday night, which adds a greater social element to the weekend. We hope that happens again, especially if you're a TAG Member travelling a large distance.

Otherwise, meet at 10:00am for a 10:30am start on Saturday. The AGM is held on Sunday morning.

We can now confirm that we will have a consultant orthopod, a consultant cosmetic surgeon and a physiotherapist, all from Great Ormond Street Hospital attending this year's Family Weekend.

As well as this illustrious group, there is also a consultant maxillofacial surgeon from Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham attending.

These medical professionals will be talking about how their specialties relate to people with Arthrogryposis.

There's more . . .

However, we not only have these medical speakers we have:

  • Maplins - the electronics shop; to tell us about Assistive Technology.
  • Employability Workshop -  run by our own Andrew Helps.
  • Carers Trust Heart of England - to advise on support and help for carers.

Not forgetting the Discussion Session for Adults as well as ample time across the weekend for chatting to one another!
