Information, advice & support
We provide online, printed and helpline advice on education, benefits and finances, childcare, social care, medical information and more.
Online advice & support
The Contact website provides advice and information about any concern you might have about raising a child with additional needs or a disability.
Helpline & live chat
We provide different services on our helpline, including Benefits Callbacks.
You can also talk to us on Live Chat or ask a question on our social media channels.
Our Listening Ear service is for parent carers looking for emotional support, practical advice and ideas and strategies to cope with the daily challenges you face - especially now, during the pandemic.
It's a free and totally confidential telephone call-back service. Book a one-hour slot via Eventbrite at a time that suits you to talk through anything worrying you with one of our friendly, non-judgemental family support workers, some of whom have a child with additional needs themselves and so understand exactly where you are coming from.
