Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
Unique Ways offers a term time only service for Parents and Carers in Calderdale.
The majority of the staff team work term time only, therefore no member services will be available during the school holidays, as was the case, before the coronavirus pandemic.
At Unique Ways the health and safety of our members, volunteers and employees is and always will be our top priority. We are following the advice of the UK Government in regard to the Coronavirus outbreak and after review of the current circumstances, our office base will be closed and any face to face work has been postponed until further notice.
In line with updated Government Guidance, (22nd September), the Unique Ways team have returned to working from home again with effect from Monday 5th October 2020.

The Unique Ways Team
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.
How We Can Help...
Providing guidance, and
pointing you in the right direction.
Free sessions focusing on
building resilience for parent carers.
Individual support from our
practitioners, tailored to your needs.
Explore our toy library of
learning and development aids.
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.
