Fact Sheets

Reaching Families and Amaze Brighton have come together to produce a series of fact sheets written for parent carers by parent carers. We have created a range of sheets on specific conditions, which combine clinical information with local information on what projects and services are available to help children, parents and families. Our tips sheets cover a variety of key topics such as DLA, PIP, choosing a school and EHC Plans and signpost parents to local information and support, as well as further reading and useful links.

Parent carers have been involved in all stages of the project, from identifying topics to cover and helping to edit content. We would welcome feedback from parents and professionals on our fact sheets. If you have any comments or recommendations for additional content please contact our project manager Brian O’Hagan at info@reachingfamilies.org.uk.
