Welcome! Disabled Parents Network (DPN) is a national organisation which aims to increase society’s acceptance of disability in parenthood and provide support information and advice to disabled parents and their families.
Our vision is of a society in which people with a disability or long-term health challenge can freely aspire to be parents and enjoy a full and rewarding family life with their partners and children. In disabled parent families, children are free to enjoy their childhood. Health, social care and education services are easy to access and disabled parent families routinely receive the support they need.
We are here for all parents with a disability or long-term health challenge. Please explore our site to find out more about us and what we do.

Twenty Twenty Productions are one of the UK’s leading production companies making innovative, BAFTA award-winning programmes.
We’re making what will be an incredible new series for Channel 4 about pregnancy and parenting- following a diverse range of parents-to-be who may have some additional needs or face challenges when having their first child. We’d therefore like to find first time mummys-to-be that would be interested in talking to us about taking part in our filming. We’d ideally like to find ladies who are expecting between June-October 2013.
At this stage we’d just like to have informal chats with women who are currently pregnant with their first child. We can tell them more about Twenty Twenty and the series and what it would entail if they were to get involved in the series.
All calls are informal with absolutely no obligation to take part.
Martyn Ware met with DPN Trustees for the first time last week. We had a great discussion and are all very excited about what we might achieve with Martyn’s ideas, influence and support as patron. Welcome Martyn!!
