Abstract

Parent and family support is central to government policy on ensuring the well-being of children. Whilst much is known about the difficulties and challenges parents with a disabled child face, and what parents want for their children, very little is known about how parents want their own lives to be. We report here the findings from research with parents of disabled children about the outcomes they desire for themselves, and their views on the role services can play in helping them achieve those outcomes.
