Contact is a leading UK Wide charity, providing advice, information and support to families caring for children and young people aged 0-25, with any disability or additional need, regardless of diagnosis.

As well as information, we also provide guidance and support with filling out forms such as PIP and DLA. We run regular workshops and classes on topics that can benefit parents living within the borough, as well as parent support group meetings and condition specific groups for support and the opportunity for parents and carers to meet. Currently, our support groups include a carers group, an Autism specific group and an Early Years (0-5) group.
