As parents with a child or children with a disability or long term illness life can be incredibly demanding. Many parents spend so much time fighting for support and services for their children that they don’t have time to think about themselves.
If you haven’t already stopped to consider your own emotional and physical health now is the time to do it. We would love to discuss your situation with you and help you to put together a ‘plan’ to take care of yourself. Part of this plan may include using some of our services:
Specialist advice and information
Local peer support groups
Information sessions for parents and carers of disabled children and young people
Connections with other local organisations
Brothers and Sisters
Brothers and Sisters of children with a disability are often called Young Carers. This is because they are usually involved in caring for their brother or sister and because of the many ways that their home life, school life and friendships are affected.
