Reports on a study which highlights how disabled parents want more access to formal support and services. The Disabled Parents Network surveyed existing groups and networks supporting parents with chronic illness, physical and sensory impairments, those with learning difficulties or with mental health needs. The consultation included 120 returned questionnaires, nine focus group meetings and informal interviews. Over 150 disabled parents were involved. The research highlighted the need for a more coordinated approach to provide holistic provision for families.
