Friends and Families' mission is to work with families with disabled children and provide high quality services that make them feel valued, improve their wellbeing and experience the best quality of life possible
They are a non-profit organisation unique to Plymouth, providing information, support and services for families with disabled children, many of whom describe the organisation as a life saver. Their services give families opportunities to network and create bespoke training and educational environments. They offer individual family support and give advice on relevant issues. They run social and leisure events allowing, ”time-out to have fun” away from the stresses and punishing regime of caring. Integrated activities enable children with disabilities opportunities to experience a huge diversity of sports, arts, crafts and music not elsewhere available to them or their families.
