Supporting Your Child

A number of parents are requesting support for a variety of reasons. We’re very glad to listen and help where we can however there are ways of speaking directly with agencies as parents.

The line is called ‘Just Ask’ and it’s open Tuesdays and Thursdays 1pm – 4pm. Call 03003031365. Someone will answer your call and then a specialist will call you back to hopefully help you.
