Families Together support group

The Families Together support group is a supportive community that allows families caring for a seriously ill child to connect, share and support one another.

Families say that being part of the community helps them feel less alone, and that they really value talking to other people who just ‘get it’.

It’s the only Facebook group I belong to where I feel I am amongst people in the same position.
