Welcome to Unique Ways

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update
July 2020

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.  Service provision has now ceased until the team return to work again after the school summer holidays – back Monday 7th September.

A skeleton staff structure will be in place during August to allow our members to buy Max Cards (by appointment only, Monday – Thursday during August).  More information about Max Cards is available here.

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 and any face to face work has been postponed until at least September 2020.

Regular updates about coronavirus are posted here

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.
