Welcome to Families InFocus

Registered Charity No: 1062311 - Limited Company No: 3287829

We are a leading independent parent led registered charity providing holistic support to families of children with disabilities and special needs (aged 0 to 25) across Essex, who require advice, information and support, particularly at times of change, challenge and crisis.

Our service is accessible to all families from Essex whatever their background, as long as at least one child or young person in the family between the age of 0 to 25 has a disability or special need.

We aim to give caring, practical and confidential support whilst empowering families, in a non–threatening way, to consider the choices available to them and make the best use of available services.

Our services are seen as essential, invaluable and tailored to meet the needs of our families in an accessible, proactive and positive way.

Thank you to all those who attended the 2017 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

It was great to see so many of our members, friends and supporters at our AGM.  Special thanks go to our two excellent speakers of the night: Lesley Bailey from Interact, who gave an informative talk on the key factors in recognising and supporting young people with their mental wellbeing and Malcolm Reeve, Trustee of Centre Algarve who spoke about the brilliant holiday Centre Algarve, a dedicated holiday facility for people and families with special needs.
