Parent Support for Mental Health

At The Orchard’s we understand what a privilege but also what a challenge it can be to parent a child who has significant disabilities. We never want parents to feel alone and as such have a Parent Support Team who, alongside the class teams, are always ready to listen and support.

The member of staff who is responsible for supporting parental mental health is our Parent Support Advisor Steph Clemmet.


24/7 free text service, for anyone in crisis, if you’re struggling to cope and need immediate help.
