Contact A Family

Finding out your child has a disability or medical condition can be difficult and bewildering. Parents of disabled children need support, information and advice.

As a parent of a disabled child you may not know where to turn to or you may be trying to cope with a whole range of feelings, as well as being constantly exhausted from the physical demands of parenting. There is support out there.
