Help & Support for parents in Cambridgeshire

Help for Cambridgeshire parents: Need someone to talk to?

Caring for a child or young person with additional needs or disability is tiring and, in a big county like Cambridgeshire, can be extremely isolating.  Pinpoint offers help for Cambs parents – including support, information and a chance to improve local services.

Support Groups

One of the main ways Pinpoint can help is to connect you with other parent carers who are in a similar situation to you. Our support group section has details of parent carer groups across the county. You can search for parent groups in your region and by need, although many groups welcome parent carers of children with all needs, disabilities and ages.

Difficult to go out and get to a support meeting?

How about a facebook group so you can connect online outside 9-5 to another parent carer who understands just how tough times can be – and can support you with advice, contacts and information as well.

Pinpoint ADHD/ASD parent groups

Monthly parent groups for parents and carers who have children with ADHD and Autism – with or without a diagnosis.

Useful Contacts

Here you will find lists of other organisations who might be able to help you.
