When I was told my child had additional needs, I wanted to meet another parent who had been through the experience.

The service

Gloucester Face 2 Face is a free and confidential befriending service for parents of children who are disabled or who have additional support needs.

Hosted by Carers Gloucestershire, the service offers emotional and practical support from trained volunteers who are all parents of children with additional support needs. Our volunteer befrienders can help parents through diagnosis or other difficult times.

How it works

You can call, text or email the scheme co-ordinator for more information.  If this service is right for you we will match you with a befriender who will contact you to arrange a first visit.  This normally happens in your home and you can then choose if you wish to continue meeting on a regular basis.

If you would like to know more the service or are interested in meeting another parent please contact the scheme co-ordinator, Angela Spence, on 07580 243717 or email face2faceglos@hotmail.co.uk.

Face 2 Face runs across the UK. If there is no scheme in your area, you can use our email and telephone befriending service.
