Hearing from other parents can be a huge source of support for families caring for a disabled child. One of the best ways parents with disabled children learn is from each other.
And we're always looking for more stories we can share to help raise awareness of the lives of families with disabled children. If you would like to know more please email Michele.Cefai@cafamily.org.uk or call the team on 020 7608 8741.
