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.
We can support with providing information around your child’s condition, benefit entitlements and also signpost to other organisations that can help. 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.
Family events and activities such as day trips are also available during the summer time and half terms at a discounted price for the whole family. We also produce regular newsletters covering support available, upcoming events, benefits and other topics of interest .Publications such as toilet training, bullying and behaviour and sleep management are also available.
