Caring for a disabled child can be tough. When you’re juggling work, household tasks and countless medical appointments for your child, there’s little time left for you. Many parents feel alone and unsupported.
How we can help you
Face 2 Face in Islington is our free befriending service offering one-to-one emotional support for parents of disabled children or those with additional needs.
Is this for me?
If you are caring for a disabled child, it’s for you. You can use this service even if your child has not been diagnosed.
Who will I meet?
You’ll meet a befriender who is a trained listener, there for you if you want to laugh, cry or simply let off steam about your day. All our befrienders are parents of disabled children, so they know better than most where you’re coming from.
Face 2 Face is run by an experienced co-ordinator and all of our volunteer befrienders receive training and on-going support.
We are recruiting volunteer befrienders now. If you are the parent of a disabled child and are interested in becoming a volunteer, your experience and knowledge could be invaluable to other parents. You will receive training, certification and full support from Scope.
For further details about becoming a volunteer or just to find out more about the service, please contact Peter Sanders on 07436 831216 or firstname.lastname@example.org
