Our vision is that families with disabled children feel valued and are strong, confident and able to make the decisions that are right for them. We offer advice and support, to thousands of families each year on all aspects of caring for a disabled child. We provide up-to-date and validated information on hundreds of disabilities and conditions, their symptoms, treatment and the support available. On our website we have information on education, benefits and family life. Contact campaigns to remove the barriers faced by families with disabled children across the UK. We support families to work together with professionals to improve local services.
