face2face Parents supporting Parents of Disabled Children
Would you like to talk to another parent who understands what you are going through and can offer emotional and practical support?
Face2Face schemes operate across the UK. Any parent of a disabled child may use their local scheme, even if your child hasn't been diagnosed.
Learning your child has a disability can come as a massive shock or it may simply confirm something you’ve suspected for a long time. Either way, the news often leaves parents feeling shattered, lonely and needing support.
That’s where Face 2 Face can help.
Face 2 Face is networks of trained volunteer befrienders who can help parents make positive adjustments to the news that their child has a disability.
Every Face 2 Face befriender is a parent too, someone whose own child has a disability. They know what it’s like to cope with a new diagnosis and can offer support parent-to-parent.
Face 2 Face is free and confidential.
A befriender can either visit you at home or you can agree another convenient location.
It is an informal and flexible arrangement designed to suit you. We support parents of children with any type of disability or special need.
