Families with disabled children lack support22nd February 2012
Grant provider, the Family Fund, has found that more than one in three families caring for a child with a disability have not had a home visit from a professional worker.
It questioned 500 families and found that 60% also said they lacked information on local, regional and national disability organisations while more than half of respondents could not access information on relevant grants. The charity said it plans to explore opportunities to fund the development and delivery of additional information “to help improve the wellbeing of families.”
