ABOUT US

FACE2FACE IS A FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL SERVICE LINKING PARENT’S AND CARERS OF CHILDREN WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITIES WITH LOCAL PARENT BEFRIENDERS, OFFERING EMOTIONAL SUPPORT AND SIGNPOSTING.  WE KNOW HOW REASSURING IT CAN BE TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE WHO UNDERSTANDS.  ALL OUR VOLUNTEERS ARE A PARENT OR CARER OF A CHILD WITH A DISABILITY OR ADDITIONAL NEED.

 

Our volunteer parent befrienders receive training and ongoing support.  Befrienders support parent’s through what can sometimes be difficult and challening experiences.

 

THE FACE2FACE SERVICE WAS FORMERLY RUN BY SCOPE FOR APPROXIMATELY 18 YEARS  BUT FRIENDS OF FACE2FACE CORNWALL IS NOW A CHARITY IN IT’S OWN RIGHT.

 

 

FRIENDS OF FACE2FACE CORNWALL RUN DROP-IN OASIS GROUPS AROUND MID AND WEST CORNWALL.  THESE GROUPS ARE FREE, FRIENDLY AND INFORMAL AND ARE HELD REGULARLY, SOME WEEKLY AND SOME MONTHLY.  PARENT’S CARERS OR FAMILY MEMBERS CAN ATTEND WITH CHILDREN AND SIBLINGS OR ON THEIR OWN.
