Family Support Services (Together Trust)
Together Trust provides a range of special educational needs and therapy services to enable families caring for children and young people with complex conditions, including autism and learning difficulties to get the help they need at specific times. The services offer practical solutions, help and support to ensure that families, children and young people get the best from their school and home life.
Our specialist services can support you and your child to focus on ordinary life and independence skills such as self-care, toileting, sleeping and eating programmes that can transform the need for ongoing carer support and help. These services deliver not just huge positive change to families but build your child’s independence skills, self-esteem and confidence that will support them now and into adulthood. Help with toilet training, sleep, eating, and becoming independent makes a huge difference to family life and the possibilities for each child.
Our specialist therapy services provide direct speech and language therapy and occupational therapy to children and young people at home, school and in other environments. Therapists offer bespoke and nationally accredited training courses to professionals, parents and carers.
