#CountingTheCosts

Families with disabled children have been left financially devastated by the pandemic

take action


We are Contact, the charity for families with disabled children

We support families, bring families together and help families take action for others.

what we do

The work Contact does is wonderful. There’s no single person from official authorities to help families through the maze of support and tell us what we need to know. Contact covers that niche and helped us get on our feet and enjoy being a family.

Without support from Contact and other fellow parents and carers, I wouldn’t be able to make it today…being part of Contact, allowed me to be who I am.

We’re proud of our numbers! In 2020/21:

196,000

families helped through our advice and support services

4,974

parent carers attended our workshops and family events

£114,000

donated by our generous supporters

92%

of families feel better informed after receiving support from us
