@disabled_parent's Recent Activity
"DPPI (Disability, Pregnancy & Parenthood International) is a small England based registered charity, controlled by disabled parents, which promotes better awareness and support for disabled people during pregnancy and as parents. DPPI believes that disabled people have an equal right to information and choice in all aspects of pregnancy and parenting.
Who we are for:
• disabled people who are already parents and those who wish to become parents
• health and social work professionals
• other individuals and organisations concerned with disability and/or pregnancy and parenting.
• A free, confidential enquiry service offering information and advice to disabled parents and professionals;
• Publications: accessible guides on disabled parenting;
• Training and consultation for health and social care professionals;
• A website, which provides information, news and articles.
People contact DPPI for many reasons and often the issues raised are complex. Information officers provide an individual response to each enquiry. DPPI produces a number of guides on different aspects of disabled parenting available in a range of accessible formats. We also regularly publish articles on the website to raise awareness of the concerns of disabled parents and build bridges between disabled people and professionals. These include personal experience, good practice and research articles, as well as resource reviews.
