We are Contact, the charity for families with disabled children. We understand that life with a disabled child brings unique challenges, and we exist to help families feel valued, supported, confident and informed.

To make that happen, we work in three closely linked ways. We support families with the best possible guidance and information.  We bring families together in local groups and online, to support each other by sharing experiences and advice. And we help families to campaign, volunteer, fundraise and shape local services to improve life for themselves and others.

In the North East region we are funded to offer general information, information about special educational needs, information about finance and welfare, support and information to families whilst their child or young person is in a hospital in the region. We run parent workshops and produce information for families and those who support them including quarterly newsletters and regular email bulletins which include information about events, workshops, leisure opportunities, support groups and news and resources.
