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, helping disabled parent families to access appropriate support and grow in knowledge and self confidence.
We currently provide the following services:-
Support Service – if you have a question or need some support you can contact us by phone or email. Leave a message and we will respond as quickly as we can.
On-line Forum. Many disabled parents are also active and happy to share ideas / offer support through our online Forum. This is free to join and gives an opportunity to share ideas or offer support. (click here to join).
Handbooks. Please see our Publications page for more details. All our materials are free to disabled parents.
DPN is an independent charity which is non-political and non-partisan and is not and will not become tied to any council or government body.
