Please contact your Family Support Adviser if you require advice, information or support on issues of concern about your child including benefits and educational matters.

“We would not have known where to go or what to do without your service and would not have known how to get our daughter into a special school . Excellent service.”

Please see Help With Disability Benefits and Independent Parental Support, and help accessing services – health, housing, social services, leisure and transport

“One of the strengths of the organisation is the support that is offered to parents of newly diagnosed children and young people…”

“… This stage can be extremely distressing and confusing for parents and by providing information, emotional support and links to other important services, Families In Focus is able to help the parent get through. Dealing with a child’s diagnosis proactively and finding out what support is available from early on, means that the negative immediate and future impact on the child is significantly reduced.”
