Resource library

We produce a wide range of publications for families with disabled children and the professionals who work with them.

You can search for a keyword or use filters to browse our library. Resources are organised by subject (for example education or benefits), type (for example parent guides or newsletters), nation and language.

Ordering and buying print copies of our parent guides

If you are a parent and want a free print version of any of our parent guides, please contact our freephone helpline on 0808 808 3555 or helpline@cafamily.org.uk.

If you are a professional then we ask that you make a small payment of £1 for each of our guides. Select 'order print version' next to any parent guide that is on sale.

Your basket will appear at the top of the page above the menu bar.

Support our work

Our free parent guides take many hours to research and write. If you've found them useful, please consider making a one-off or recurring monthly donation to support our work with families with disabled children across the UK.
