What we are all about

What We Do

Supporting and uniting families

In Touch was established in 1999 to meet a growing need to support families with a special needs child.

Our primary raison d’etre is to provide support for parents/carers and siblings of children with moderate to severe disabilities through the provision of education, training and recreational facilities.


In Touch enables families to make new friendships; discuss their fears and anxieties and feel less isolated; share information and attend regular breaks which gives them the emotional and physical strength to continue their daily challenges with renewed strength.

We are based in London with a branch in Manchester and presently we are supporting over 300 familiies.

The happy faces of the In Touch families prove that we are heading in the right direction.
