Parents Inclusion Network is charity based in Dumfries and Galloway who enable parents and carers of disabled children, to come together and support each other through shared experiences. Our members have, or care for, children of all ages, with a wide range of disabilities. We welcome new members to join us, even if your child does not have a formal diagnosis.
Staff at Parents Inclusion Network, known to our members as just ‘PIN’, are here to offer practical advice and support to help you and your family. We bring together parents and carers of a disabled child to share experiences and reinforce that you are not alone. If you have a disabled child, we offer a range of activities, support services and training events. Our staff are a dedicated team that can listen, understand and help. Whether you come along to a lunch or coffee meet up, attend a family day activity or get involved with the training we run, there is something to help everyone.
Please note our events are open to Parent Inclusion Members only. All our members are welcome to attend our events. Click on the individual events to find out more details or visit our events page to see all our upcoming events.
There is a variety of ways you can volunteer and support Parents Inclusion Network.
You can join our board of directors. You can apply to become a volunteer at our events or you can fund raise on the behalf of Parents Inclusion Network.
As one of our volunteers you will gain confidence by giving you the opportunity to try something new and build a real sense of achievement. Our volunteers also get to meet new people, learn new skills and make new friends.
The most important part is having fun, most volunteers have a great time, regardless of why they do it so why not contact us and start getting involved!
