Signpost is a parent-led charity based in West Lothian, Scotland that provides support for families of children and young people with disabilities.
The charity runs a helpline, drop-in service, one-to-one sessions, training courses and an advocacy service, to empower families and ensure that young people with disabilities can access the same life chances as other children.
Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to support the charity’s ‘Here to Help’ project which provides information, advocacy, training and support to children and young people with disabilities, and their families.
Many of the charity’s staff members are parents of young people with disabilities, so they understand how to support other families of children with similar conditions. They provide guidance, drawn from their own experience, about what support might be appropriate.
The project is designed to empower families, helping them to explore their options, identify what support they need and make a plan to move forward.
With your help, we can support Signpost and many other charities across the UK.
