Family support

Our Family Support Workers can offer their time to parents and carers who have specific concerns about their children or who maybe just need a little extra help themselves.

Please note that during the Covid-19 pandemic, Space 2 Be Me’s face 2 face support groups, clubs and holiday activities have been impacted. We now have a range of virtual clubs and family challenges/events , drop ins and where restrictions allow some family events or one to one appointments for parents. Our family support service is still available via telephone and support@space2beme.org.uk for parents and carers and you can find out more about our Virtual Zoom drop ins here .

With many years of experience of working with families and children with additional needs between them, they can offer information and advice in these areas and beyond:

  • Behavioural concerns
  • Supporting sensory needs
  • Using visual aids
  • Sleep issues
  • Wellbeing

Sometimes parents and carers just benefit from space, time and a listening ear over a cup of tea or coffee at one of our regular drop-ins or support at meetings with other agencies. We can also help you with form filling or signpost you to a useful information source that you might not have discovered already.

For our Space 2 Be Me members, we also offer a series of workshops across the year and have a lending library of resources – books, sensory equipment, games, articles and communication aids – that families are welcome to come and browse.

Space 2 Be Me’s family support service is part of the Family Support Partnership of parent driven charities working across 9 districts of Kent offering support to families of disabled children, funded by the National Lottery.
