Contact provides support, advice and information for families with disabled children, no matter what their condition or disability.

Hospitals and hospices project

Parent adviser Toni Rushton is based at The Evelina Children's Hospital most Monday mornings, providing information, advice and drop ins in the main outpatients for any family with a disabled child.

Each family will be able to attend face-to-face drop-in sessions with one of our parent advisers, where parents can discuss their most pressing issues. These may be around disability benefits, how to navigate the condition-specific services they might access, educational issues, or how to find a peer-support group. Our parent advisers will also ring or email families with tailored information about the problems they discussed, and refer them to our helpline if needed.
