Welcome to Unique Ways

Supporting families with disabled children.

We are a parent-carer led organisation supporting disabled children and their families, helping them to lead ordinary lives. Our goal is to make sure that the voices of parent carers and their families are heard.
We provide a broad range of services for parent carers, from training courses and Independent Supporters to social events, focus groups and discounts on family days out! We don’t restrict our services based on whether your child has a diagnosis or not, and instead work with anyone who feels they need our help.

Family Voice Calderdale Logo

Our parents and carers forum, Family Voice Calderdale, ensures that you have a voice in shaping services for children with additional needs.

This active group of parent carers works in partnership with Statutory Service Providers to influence the design, development and delivery of services for disabled children and young people in Calderdale. The group encourages families to get involved, share experiences, and take an active role in shaping the services they use.
