Whilst it is crucial to the welfare of children that all parents are well supported, there has been much evidence over the past decade pointing to the fact that it is very hard for parents with chronic illnesses, physical and/or sensory impairments, Deaf parents, those with learning difficulties and those with particular mental health needs to access information, resources and support to help them fulfil their parenting responsibilities. The aim was to identify useful sources of information and support and at the same time to find out whether there were particular points at which parents had experienced difficulty or were not happy with what was available. The aim was also to check out whether what the SSI said in respect of social services departments applies across other agencies and the voluntary sector.
