About us

Contact a Family is a national charity for families with disabled children.

We provide information, advice and support. We bring families together so they can support each other. We campaign to improve their circumstances, and for their right to be included and equal in society.

Our Aims

  • families with disabled children know how to get the right support, for them and their families

  • families with disabled children are confident to deal with the challenges they face

  • the financial disadvantage that families with disabled children face has been alleviated

  • families with disabled children are understood, valued and included as equal participants in their communities and in society.

Our Values

We work with families, for families

Everything we do is about continually improving the lives of families with disabled children. We achieve this through working directly with parents and carers and we are driven by what they tell us is important.

We are ambitious

We believe families with disabled children deserve better and we won't stop until we have achieved our mission. We are brave and take risks in striving for what is right. 

We transform lives

We drive innovation and change wherever it will benefit families with disabled children. We always focus on the impact we are having. Through this we change the lives of families with disabled children.

We challenge disadvantage

We tackle disadvantage wherever we find it. We help families with disabled children deal with the barriers they face each and every day, and at Contact a Family we treat all people fairly in our own work. 

We trust and are trusted

We always act in an open, transparent and accountable manner. We work collaboratively to achieve more. We respect the strengths and knowledge of others and we are confident of our own expertise and experience.
