Contact is the only UK-wide charity providing advice, information and support to parents of all disabled children - no matter what their health condition.

Our freephone helpline offers a one-stop-shop for families of children with disabilities, with advice on welfare rights, community care issues, education needs and a listening ear, with access to interpreters.

We link parents of children with the same disability or condition on a local and national basis through our family linking service.

Parents can call our helpline to find a family or register on our linking website Making Contact

Wide range of publications for parents and professionals including the 'Contact a Family Directory - the essential guide to medical conditions, disabilities and support groups'.  Especially useful after diagnosis to get reliable, validated advice. 

We provide information to professionals and developmental advice to support groups.
