Coronavirus: information and updates

Parents Connect

Parents Connect is a 6-week support programme for parents and carers of young disabled people. 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, sessions will be run online until further notice. 


The service is free and for parents and carers who are:

  • aged 18 or over
  • the parent or carer of a young disabled person between the age of 0 and 18
  • living in England or Wales

      Accessing the service

      Group sessions with other parents and carers  

      The online sessions will be in groups of up to 12 parents or carers. There will be 6 parent sessions, usually one each week. After you apply we will try to find a time and date that will work for you.

      Each session will:

      • encourage you to talk to others in the group
      • provide you with information about local and national services
      • last a couple of hours

      It was a valuable source of information and opened up our eyes to other things to help that we didn’t already know. To meet other families with similar struggles means you are not alone in this journey. Highly recommended.
