SUPPORTING YOU

Our Family Support team of Advisor/Advocates offer a bespoke package of support based on your family's needs. This could range from Benefit advice, Educational issues to support and advice around behavioural issues.

This support is delivered either over the phone/email. Our initial consultations are your chance for you to let us know of any issues or struggles you are having so we can support you to the fullest or find other agencies and organisations that can support you.

Our support comes in the acts of:

  • Advice around form filling and completion
  • Visuals and advice on their implementation
  • Drafting Letters to different professionals and organisations
  • Training for Parents/Professionals

this is just a small list we cater the service to you and your families individual needs
