Most families who have a member with a disability become isolated and feel that other people do not understand the challenges and concerns the family have to face. Kith & Kids offers:
- Knowledgeable and experienced family support workers offering practical assistance.
- Support groups for parents as well as sibling support groups.
- Telephone information and support line.
- Outreach through seminars on current issues and information and training for other organisations.
We have a wide network of families who share experiences, both difficulties and joys. We do this through a regular programme of activities and parent support meetings. Kith & Kids enables every member of the family, whatever their age or ability to find support, make friends and to improve the quality of their lives.
Between us, we have a wealth of experience and wide range of abilities and interests. Whatever the issue – school, housing, benefits, leisure – we will support you to find the information, professional guidance and practical resources you need. Experience shows that even the most overwhelming difficulty can be overcome when we tackle it together. As far as we’re concerned, self-help is mutual help.
