Face 2 Face Cymru
Face 2 Face offers a one-to-one befriending service for parents discovering their child is disabled.
Every Face 2 Face befriender is a mother or father of a disabled child. They know what it's like to cope with a new diagnosis or navigate their way around the transition period. They can offer one-to-one support, parent to parent. Befrienders have a very good local knowledge. Where possible they make every effort to offer information and sign-posting on a range of disability services and issues. The service works closely with other voluntary and statutory bodies both locally and nationally. Local services and professionals who would like more information on this scheme including details on how to refer parents or work in partnership please contact the scheme co-ordinator.
Face 2 Face is seeking to expand the network across Wales. If you are a parent of a child with additional support needs, you'll know how important support is. If you are a parent or professional and feel your area would benefit from a Face 2 Face service, please call Maizie Elfin on 029 2081 5455 or email email@example.com for more information.
