Our national and regional events

MACS Family Weekend video

Every year, MACS members are invited to join us at our Family Weekend which takes place on the early May bank holiday weekend.

'The family weekend is the only place we are confident to allow our son to run around with the other children and feel he is safe and understood.'

Our Family Weekend gives all our MACS members the chance to get together to share advice and support, make new friends and, most importantly, have fun! There's always lots of events and activities for all of the family to get involved with and MACS the Monkey also joins us by popular demand!

'It has given me a large support network to be able to ask advice when needed but also close friendships for both me and my husband and my MACS child and her sister'

This year's Family Weekend will be held at the Park Hall Hotel in Chorley from the 3rd to the 6th May. The weekend costs £50 per person per night (for the first 2 adults and any adult siblings of the MACS young person) which includes lunch, dinner, bed & breakfast.

Places are limited so don't delay! To book your place, email Jenny at jenny@macs.org.uk

At MACS we want to give you lots of opportunities to get together with other families, gain support and have fun! 

All of our events are listed on our Facebook Support For Families group page. This is a closed group for people with MACS conditions and their families where anyone can ask questions and gain support. Please click that link and the 'Join Group' button if you would like to be added. If you don't have Facebook then you can email us at events@macs.org.uk to find out more.

We organise a number of events throughout the year - some which are open to all MACS members and some which are based in specific regions.

We try to make sure that there is something for everyone, but please contact us at events@macs.org.uk with any ideas or if you are interested in helping out or becoming a regional supporter for MACS.
