Pass It On Parents

We are parents of children with disability.  We help families with a disabled child to find and create mutual support. We do this through social media and by meeting up. We help families find all the information that they need in order to have the best possible family life as full members of their communities.

We believe that parent to parent support is really important.  We are a wide network.  We want to support all parents of disabled children in Newcastle including those who have an individual or personal budget.

We organise a range of coffee mornings, catch up, chats and informal meetings where parents can drop in and socialise, offer ro see advice and support from other parents. 

We have some paid workers who support this parental voice group and help keep everyone informed, particularly using social media.
