Supporting parents to achieve what matters most to them

Parents in Partnership

Parents in Partnership 

At PiP we work with, parent carers of children and young people with additional needs and disabilities aged 0-25 living in Croydon.

Our aim is to improve lives of parents by providing specialist advocacy and support, expert training and up to date local knowledge and information.

We care about the individual, about inclusion and about recognising that success for different people comes in different ways.

Not only have they provided us with a voice of reason when we felt we were hitting a brick wall, they have been there to listen to our concerns -great and small , to guide us in the right direction; and advise us on what the standards of care we should expect for our child.

At PiP we offer the following:

  • Opportunities to empower parents to speak up and act for themselves, helping them to realise their potential and achieve the outcomes that matter to them and to their family
  • Providing training and information that makes people feel more in control of what they are doing and better able to respond tothe challenges they face.
  • Providing access to support from experienced Family Link Workers to ensure that parents feel heard and more able to act in a range of situations.
  • A well-established network to connect communities, signpost individuals and reduce feelings of isolation.
She was a lifeline at one of the worst times I have had with my daughter; always supportive and happy to listen when I had no one else to turn to.
