Service description:
Face2Face is a support service for parents who have a child from birth to 18 with a disability or special need. We have been running in Northamptonshire for 5 years. It is one of approximately 80 schemes running nationally.

We have an experienced network of trained volunteer parents, who themselves have children with a disability, to act as befrienders.

Befrienders are able to share and empathise with parents because of their own emotional experiences, and support them to make positive adjustments to their child’s disability.

As part of this we run a Dads group to provide support, who meet socially once a month.

We also provide a group for parents of children with High Functioning Autism called High 5.

We also hold family events throughout the year taking place in the school holidays.

Any parent with a child with a disability can be referred or refer themselves for support.
