Parents of Disabled Children

The online support forum is a friendly place offering support to parents of disabled children or parents of children with Special needs. On parents of disabled children you can share advice or seek advice or maybe you just need a place to let off some steam then this is the place for you.

On parents of disabled children, Members can obtain Benefit advice and Education advice and ensure they are getting what they should be getting.

We have members who have children with a variety of health conditions and special needs so you are no longer alone and you can find support with parents who are going through the same feelings as you.

NetBuddy is an award-winning website and online community for parents, carers and learning disability professionals. It is a place to find ideas, swap tips and access information on everything from brushing teeth to challenging behaviour.

There are also practical info packs on subjects like financial help and jobs & training, plus a friendly interactive forum.
