Last year they supported more than 64 children with varying needs. Ninety seven per cent of  families said that they felt more confident in supporting their child after accessing their services.

Communication with families on their child’s progress is rated as excellent and as a result, 94 per cent of families felt less isolated and 92 per cent felt more positive about their child’s future.

One parent said: “I truly feel as a family we would have felt lost and scared without the support and knowledge from Dingley’s Promise. The care and support and love our daughter has received truly has been incredible.”

Dingley’s Promise also offers outreach support to any local family with a child aged 0-5 with SEND.

Their Family Support Service currently operates remotely, using Zoom to provide support sessions that cover topics from potty training to sensory issues, and drop in sessions for parents/carers to receive tailored advice and support.

They also share educational resources directly with families, and on social media, and encourage parents to join the online community group.
