Our Really Really Useful Guides.

From the start of your journey to planning for adulthood. 

We know what it is like to be on the rollercoaster journey that is parenting a child with additional needs. It is full of joys and happy moments of achievement but it is also full of challenges.

Our community tell us this journey is oftentimes like being parachuted into a strange land, without a map, knowing you need to get somewhere and that you need support for the road but where do you go and how can you get that support when you “don’t know what you don’t know”? This is why we put together these great guides to help you on your way whether you are on the start of your journey or thinking about the transition to adulthood.
