We are a one-stop shop offering information, advice and support for parents of children with any special needs. Our telephone helpline is an information and advice line for parents who would like to speak to someone who has an understanding of their situation. We produce a range of information for parents on paper and on line. We offer one to one help on education issues, claiming disability benefits and on transition to adult life. We run the Compass Card which gives cut-price leisure across the city. We run courses and events for parent carers. We get involved in consultation and development work to enable parents' voices to be heard by policy makers and service providers, and host the Parent Carers' Council, a city-wide group of parent carers that works to improve local services.
