Parents Connect

Parents Connect supports families of disabled children and those with additional needs.

We are now accepting referrals for our September and October workshops.


    The service is for parents and carers who are:

    • aged 18 or over
    • the parent or carer of a child with additional needs, between the age of 0 and 18. You do not need a diagnosis.
    • living in England or Wales

    Workshops: what they will cover

    In these workshops, we will be looking at several different topics:

    • dealing with diagnosis
    • benefits for families of disabled children
    • SEND support in schools
    • EHCP basics
    • supporting siblings of disabled children (delivered by Sibs)
    • accessing public services (delivered by Cerebra)
    • parents of children with cerebral palsy

    Accessing the service

    You can apply for yourself or get a referral from a professional, such as a family support worker.

    Once we receive your referral, a member of the team will be in touch.
