Service Description

Description of Service

We are Contact, the charity for families with disabled children. We support families with the best possible guidance and information. We bring families together to support each other. And we help families to campaign, volunteer and fundraise to improve life for themselves and others.

There is a desperate lack of services and support for the 620,000 parents in the UK who care for a disabled child. As a result, families face a huge range of challenges and many feel isolated and alone. Coping with extra financial costs and practical challenges can put an enormous strain on daily life, with families more likely to face emotional issues, stress and anxiety.

We are here for all families with disabled children - supporting families, bringing families together and helping families take action for others.
Our vision is that families with disabled children feel valued and are strong, confident and able to make the decisions that are right for them.

Contact's website provides advice and information about any concern you might have about raising a child with additional needs - from diagnosis, entitlement to services and benefits, to childcare and support when your child is at school or college.

To help find the advice you are looking for quickly and easily, take a look at:

- our online shop offering a range of products for your child and your family
- browse our library of podcasts and look out for our regular Facebook Q&A sessions for tips and advice on parents top issues and concerns
- sign up to our free, regular e-newsletter, What's New, to find our latest information and on line advice
- call our free helpline on 0808 808 3555 between 9.30 - 5.00pm Monday to Friday or email us at helpline@contact.org.uk
