Contact is the only UK-wide charity providing advice, information and support to parents of all disabled children - no matter what their health condition. We enable parents to get in contact with other families through a family linking service, both on a local and national basis.
We have a freephone helpline offering a one-stop-shop for families of children with disabilities, offering advice on welfare rights, community care issues, education needs and a listening ear with access to interpreters. We also have a number of local, regional and nation offices plus volunteer family workers around the UK.
We also provide information to professionals and developmental advice to support groups. We work to influence services and have campaigns that aim to improve the quality of life for families with disabled children.
We have a wide range of publications for parents and professionals including The 'Contact - The essential guide to medical conditions, disabilities and support' (new edition every year).
