Parents Action through Advocacy Project
This three year project specifically addresses the needs of parents with learning disabilities, providing independent advocacy at a time of crisis and challenging the lack of appropriate support to enable families to stay together.
Our experience has shown us that when appropriate targeted support is in place parents with learning disabilities who have experienced difficulties can be successful loving parents. We work with families where we have seen this in action.
