Free workshops and 1:1 support
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, Contact have been adapting their support offer for families.: “We’ve adapted our workshops to online options so that families can continue to connect with each other and gain useful information and advice at the same time. We’ve also set up new, “Listening Ear” 1-1 confidential phone appointments with our family support advisers for parents who would like to talk to someone for reassurance and practical and emotional support at this time. These are all FREE for families and we are listing the Workshop dates and “Listening Ear” appointments on our website so if you know a family who may benefit from either of these options please do tell them where to book on.”
