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.
Unique Ways also hosts Family Voice Calderdale, the Parent Carer Forum for Calderdale. Family Voice Calderdale aims to ensure that Parent Carers have a voice in shaping services for children & young people with additional needs in Calderdale, aims to seek and represent the views of the collective voice of Parent Carers and aims to make sure that services provided actually meet the needs of parent carers and their families in Calderdale.
