About the Service
About the Organisation
Face 2 Face is a network of trained volunteer befrienders who can help parents make positive adjustments to the news that their child has a disability.
Every Face 2 Face befriender is a parent too – someone whose own child has a disability. They know what it’s like to cope with a new diagnosis and can offer support parent-to-parent.
Face 2 Face is free and confidential. A befriender can either visit you at home or you can agree another convenient location. It is an informal and flexible arrangement designed to suit you. We support parents of children with any type of disability or special need.
