Umbrellas Parent Support Groups

Support from fellow parent-carers has proved to be one of the most effective ways in which families of children with special educational needs and disabilities build resilience. Reaching Families has therefore established a number of parent support groups at various locations across West Sussex.

Known as Umbrellas, our groups provide an informative, supportive, relaxed and non-judgemental environment within which parents can swap life experiences, share hints and tips, seek advice and share information and resources. Our groups, which currently meet monthly, are based in Billingshurst, Littlehampton and Worthing.
