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.
