Who are we?


HELPP  is a Sutton based registered charity for supporting parents and carers of children with special needs of all kinds.


We know that Parents of disabled children have to deal with practical and emotional challenges that are unimaginable to most families.


This is particularly true early on, when parents are still coming to terms with their child's needs or disability and are starting to grapple with a confusing range of professionals, services and benefits.


We welcome parents  with children who have:

Our Workshop page will show information about each workshop as soon as the detail is available.

What do we do?


HELPP aims, in a solution based approach,  to provide emotional and practical advice which will help parents and carers to increase their capabilities and enable them to understand and work with their children’s behaviour.


We provide opportunities for parents and carers to work together, in a safe, non-judgemental environment, to gain insight into child behaviours and identify strategies to help parents & carers.


When working together with you at Coffee Mornings or Workshops, we search for possible ways of caring for and looking after a child or young person whose own view of life is different to that which society perceives as normal.


Please note:

We are not medical professionals and will not give any medical or professional advice but we are parents who have made the commitment to help each other and provide support, advice or ideas to those who need support NOW

Would you like to help our charity that supports parents of children with challenging behaviours such as autism, ADHD and ASD?

HELPP is looking for volunteers who can spare a few hours a week to expand the services available from this small local voluntary organisation.  We need people who can help with publicity, design, promotion, administration and research.  The only skills you need is an interest in finding out more about the area, access to computer and a few spare hours!  

Examples of volunteer roles:

1-Publicity and promotion - help update and redesign leaflets, produce fliers, draft articles for local newsletters and email out notices.

2-Social media - find interesting items on you tube or the Internet to add to our Facebook page to keep it up to date and approve posts.

3-Library manager - look after our lending library, hold the books, records of lenders and follow up return requests (any costs will be covered eg post/telephone calls)

4-Researcher - keep track of new initiatives, research, or changes in legislation and policy that might affect parents locally or nationally and bring it to the attention of our steering group.
