Support for families

We’re here for families wherever they live in the UK, and whenever they need us

Local offices & family events 

We have local offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and across London. 

Aside from providing local advice, our regional teams organise coffee mornings, family fun days and outings, bringing families together for friendship and support. 

Workshops and information sessions 

We run a range of fun workshops and information sessions, on topics ranging from benefits and money matters to helping your child sleep and wellbeing.

Our events are both online and face-to-face, running across the UK.

Fledglings shop 

Fledglings is Contact’s not-for-profit shop that helps families with disabled children by supplying products and equipment that help with their everyday challenges. 

Fledglings provides an easy and trusted environment to find the right solutions and allows families to connect and share their experiences. 

Hemihelp

Continuing the work of the charity HemiHelp, we provide support to children and young people living with hemiplegia. 

Alongside online advice and information, we produce a free magazine and run Try It days and other activities for families.
