Go back a step

Keeping connected during lockdown – join our new closed Facebook page especially for families with disabled children

Monday 27th April 2020

Covid-19 has changed the way we all live  but for many families caring for a child with additional needs the impact has intensified the usual daily challenges and added layers of new ones.

We know that so many of you will have some great advice to share with other families like yours during this challenging time.  At the same time you might also have a lot of concerns, questions and queries of your own.

That's why we've created a brand new closed (private) Facebook Group for parent carers to go where you can chat and share how you are feeling as a parent carer under lock down with others going through the same thing. Only other members of the closed group will be able to see any posts you make here.

Our new Facebook group opens today. All you have to do to become a member is to register here and you'll be all set to go.

The group will be moderated by Contact staff and when you register we'll ask you for a little bit of information about yourself so that we can make sure the group remains solely for families who care for a child with additional needs.

We're hoping that our new Facebook Group offers you a safe place to ask any questions, express any fears you might have and share your tips and experiences with other families at a time when we know many of you are facing extra-ordinary challenges.
