Working Families For Parents Of Disabled Children

As the parent of a disabled child, you will know that support is essential. The existence of people who share your experience and can offer practical help is invaluable. That is why Working Families has created 'Waving not drowning' for parents of disabled children. This is a project for parents who work, or want to work, and who have children with disabilities. It provides a network, a newsletter and a dedicated helpline. Call for free advice on Tax Credits, flexible working and rights at work.
