Family Matters Richmond and Hounslow

We provide Family Matters, our parents support service, in Richmond and Hounslow. Our Parent Support Workers provide practical support, advice and information to families with children with disabilities and/or additional needs who are feeling under pressure or who are experiencing difficulties.

We will:

  • Listen to your worries and experiences in a non-judgmental way
  • Work with you to identify what is working and what is not working
  • Support you to focus on areas of family life that you find challenging and will work with you to identify steps to address some of these difficulties
  • Provide you with information on activities and services and will support you to access them.

Mrs Peters has a son with complex health & social care needs. When she was referred to us she had no services in place & was struggling to cope. Our Parent Support Worker supported her to get a re-assessment which resulted in her getting 6 hours of support from social services. She now has a sitter in place who stays with her son so that she can have a break. She has a specialist car to transport her son in and is managing much better.
