Support for children

We are here to give your family the personalised support you need for your child, from early childhood through to adulthood.

We know that being a parent of a child who is deafblind or has other complex disabilities can be challenging.

With the right support, we believe it's possible for every child to make sense of their world and the world around them. To communicate, connect and take part in life, no matter what.
