Christmas can often be an isolating time for families with disabled children.
Our work to reduce isolation in the last year includes providing opportunities for 12,000 parents to come together at workshops and events, and linking up 179,000 parents with children of specific rare conditions.
Help us this Christmas to reach out to more families with disabled children, by donating online or by asking friends and family to donate to us in lieu of cards or gifts.
What difference will my money make?
There are thousands of families with disabled children in the UK. Your money will go towards helping families overcome the sometimes, enormous challenges they face. Your money will help:
- make families less isolated - just one day out can make such a difference to disabled children and their families
- provide specialist training and information for parents - including behaviour that challenges, managing sleep problems, managing debts and the common challenges that families face
- help parents deal with the financial pressures they face - we found out it cost three times more to raise a child with a disability compared to one without. We help parent carers have access to the help they need. Our advisers help over 900 people a month over the phone and over 1,000 people face to face.
