Support Groups

We currently operate a number of support groups and drop-ins for parents, grandparents and carers of disabled children in the Swanley, Gravesham, Northfleet, Swanscombe, Greenhithe and Dartford areas.


  • Everyone is welcome to attend any or all of the support groups
  • They are free of charge and light refreshments are provided
  • They provide parents with the opportunity to share their wealth of experiences and information with each other
  • You do not necessarily need a diagnosis for your child, in order to attend.
