Family Information and Services Hub


We are Contact, the charity for families with disabled children.  We support families with the best possible guidance and information. We bring families together to support each other. And we help families to campaign, volunteer and fundraise to improve life for themselves and others.

We put families at the heart of everything we do

Families with disabled children make us who we are. They drive our decisions. They inspire us to get results and create lasting change. They challenge us and make sure the way we work creates the biggest impact.

We are approachable and we never judge

We mean it when we say we're inclusive. Families can always contact us - it's in our name and in our nature. And they don't need to qualify for our support. For every shape and size of family, whatever they need and whatever their child's disability, we're here. We guarantee a warm welcome and we're always positive and respectful. 

Contact is a trading name of Contact a Family.
