Contact a Family
Contact a family is a national registered charity, founded in 1979, dedicated to helping families who care for children with any disability or special need. At our heart is a unique and powerful combination of Expert and comprehensive knowledge about rare disorders and all aspects of disability, a wealth of personal experience and contacts; and an approach driven first and foremost by parents' point of view. Our aim is never to dictate to families, but always to enable them to organise their own systems of support and contact. If this is 'enabling rather than running' approach that allows us to deliver social change far beyond our resources and size.
