Contact for Families with Disabled Children

Contact a Family provides support, advice and information for families with disabled children, no matter what their condition or disability.

In the West Midlands, we carry out our service through our regional office in Birmingham, home-based workers and volunteers. Working at a local and regional level, we have up-to-date information on local services and support for families.

We bring families together so they can support each other. We campaign to improve their circumstances, and for their right to be included and equal in society.

We provide support, advice and information on:

  • Contact a Family helpline
    For information or advice on any aspect of caring for a disabled child, call our freephone helpline.
