Caring for children with disabilities
Trips & Fun Events
by In Touch Group
Raising a special child doesn't take a Special family,
it makes a family Special!
Our members enjoy bi-annual mini-breaks. Our weekend retreat caters to couples, where parents can find time to reconnect in intimate and relaxing surroundings. Our midweek break is exclusively for mothers/female carers, to give them some much needed me time away from the daily grind.More
During school holidays, or festivals, we arrange trips for the entire family. We ensure that our excursions are completely family and disabled friendly, so that our members can enjoy a fun day out. We take care of the details, so they don’t have to.More
Our quarterly magazine gives our members a chance to share and read personal stories from other people in similar situations. With motivational and inspirational articles, humour, and information we are able to keep our members in touch throughout the yearMore
We offer workshops on specific topics that relate to being a primary carer of a disabled child. These workshops are delivered by professionals and allow parents an open forum to raise questions, get advice and obtain valuable resources for further information.
The social events we offer throughout the year give the parents renewed energy in a fun and relaxed setting. These events usually include a motivational lecture, gourmet buffet and musical entertainment. The release of tension is palpable through the sounds of laughter and positive feedback received.More
Being a sibling of a child with special needs can breed feelings of loneliness, resentment and isolation. We established Kids United Youth Association a separate support network, which offers fun days out, mini breaks, chit chat magazine and social activities aimed at siblings of all ages.More
A disabled child is a mortgage for life. In Touch was established in 1999 to offer guidance and support to families of children with special needs. We recognise the confusion, isolation and stigma that these families face, and our services enable the parents and siblings to surf their waves of daily challenge. We offer educational seminars, retreats, getaways, workshops and fun days out. Our programmes cater to families caring for disabled children across the full spectrum of disabilities.
Through InTouch’s activities, the barriers of stigma and seclusion melt away as the families create new friendships, have fun days out, network and share tips with those who understand them most. The physical and emotional support gained, as well as the much needed respite, imbues them with strength, encouragement, and motivation to combat their daily challenges.
We are based in London and our membership currently numbers 300, with members from London, Manchester, and Gateshead.
We are nearing our 20th year since the inception of In Touch, and the constant positive feedback, and renewed memberships reinforces that our organisation is not only appreciated, but a vital necessity.
