Finally getting the right Disability Living Allowance award, dropping hours at work without suffering financially, seeing your child sleep peacefully for 8 hours a night… there are endless possibilities of how our free Listening Ear service can change your life for the better. 

Sound too good to be true? See for yourself: Shona, Contact’s senior parent adviser and one of the parent carers in our Listening Ear team, decided to share some of her favourite stories of how she has helped families these past few months. 

You might need practical advice on issues like your child’s education, social care, behaviour or benefits. Or maybe you’re struggling emotionally and want to talk to someone who understands what you’re going through. 

No matter what you’re after, our Listening Ear is here for you. 

Watch our introductory video to find out more about Listening Ear and the fantastic team behind it, what you can call us about, and what other parents think of this service. 

Then, when you’re feeling ready, head over to our Eventbrite page to book a free and confidential appointment. We have slots available in the morning, afternoon and evening to suit all busy schedules.
