Why we need your support
From our research reports Counting the Costs and Forgotten Families we found that:
- 1 in 6 families with a disabled child are going without food
- 1 in 5 families with a disabled child are going without heating
- 86 per cent are going without leisure time or days out
- over 60 per cent of families feel isolated all or most of the time
- over 50 per cent of say that the isolation is due to a lack of support.
You don't have to have a disabled child - or even be a parent - to empathise with the stresses and strains that bringing a disabled child up can add to family life.
