Fledglings is part of Contact, the charity for families with disabled children. Contact supports families with the best possible guidance and information. We bring families together to support each other and we help families to campaign, volunteer and fundraise to improve life for themselves and others.
Our Fledglings service helps families to find solutions to day to day difficulties that challenge them in the care and development of their children. We do this by searching for, developing, testing and supplying affordable products to meet individual needs. We also inform families about other services that may help and signpost them to sources of financial support where appropriate. As Fledglings has long experience of addressing a wide variety of different needs we are often able to give immediate answers to the problems families bring to us. This helps children to receive help promptly and relieves families of further searching. We offer assistance via our phone and email and parents can also call Contacts Freephone helpline to help address any issues parents are facing with raising a disabled child.
Through our mail order brochure ‘Product Solutions for Children's Special Needs' we are able to supply a range of relatively small items directly and at as low a price as we can manage, so saving further time in obtaining small items to help a child progress. These products include eating and drinking equipment, toilet training aids, safety items, and a range of clothing including swimwear for incontinent children. These items help children to achieve greater independence in eating, drinking, becoming continent, and learning to swim and so ultimately to be involved in inclusive activities within their communities.
