Because family life matters

Additional needs

Becoming a parent is a life-changing event with new routines to get used to and a whole new set of priorities. But when your child has additional needs, there’s an even greater adjustment to be made.

Parents can often feel isolated and misunderstood, and it can be hard to find other mums and dads in the same situation. In this section there are articles to encourage and support you. You can also find out about our befriending support service for those caring for a child with additional needs.
