    Hi @mendes12

    My name is Beverley and I am a parent advisor for the Scope Navigate service.

    Have you thought about the following?

    Navigate provides a six week programme of online and telephone support to parents who have a child going through diagnosis, or who have a child who has recently been diagnosed with a disability.  The aim is to provide parents with emotional and practical support that will help them build resilience as they start their journey as a parent of a child with a disability or impairment. 

    The link to the online referral form is below:


    Our phones are also live from 9am - 8pm on Monday - Friday and 9am to 12pm on a Saturday.

    I hope this helps.
