Family Matters

Our Family Support Service provides practical support, advice and information to families with children with disabilities and/or additional needs who are feeling under pressure or who are experiencing difficulties.

We will:

  • Listen to your worries and experiences in a non-judgemental way
  • Work with you to identify what is working and what is not working
  • Support you to focus on areas of family life that you find challenging and will work with you to identify steps to address some of these difficulties
  • Provide you with information on activities and services and will support you to access them.

To find out more call Sian Austin on 07903 633 326 or email sianaustin@ruils.co.uk.

Mrs Peters has a son with complex health & social care needs. When she was referred to us she had no services in place & was struggling to cope. Our Family Support Worker supported her to get a re-assessment which resulted in her getting 6 hours of support from social services. She now has a sitter in place who stays with her son so that she can have a break. She has a specialist car to transport her son in and is managing much better.
