Telephone support

We run a free advice and information helpline for parents and carers with a disabled child and / or child with ALN aged from birth to 25, living in any part of the UK. If you are looking for emotional support, book an appointment with our Listening Ear telephone support service.

Listening Ear

Our 1-1 telephone appointments for parent / carers looking for emotional support.

You might be struggling emotionally and looking for strategies to help you cope. Or maybe you just need to talk to someone who understands the extra challenges you face and who can point you in the right direction to get the support you need for your family.  To help, we offer 1-1 telephone appointments with a family support adviser for parent / carers looking for a listening ear, reassurance and practical and emotional support.  

Making an appointment is simple: Choose the day (morning, afternoon or evening), and when you register choose the time slot you want.  Appointments are regularly updated and are subject to availability. Please email – listeningearappt@contact.org.uk to book a Listening Ear appointment

Important information before booking

Please ensure that you book your call for a time that you know you will be free to talk and somewhere that you feel safe and is quiet so that you can get the most out of the time you have.  Appointments are 45 minutes long.
