If you are a parent, young person, or health professional, you are in the right place to gain access to essential support and a host of resources including a freephone helpline, financial assistance, respite holidays and practical advice around health and benefits.
One of the most important things we do at MACS is to give our members access to a network of other families who have a first-hand experience of what they are going through. Through our regional support groups, families can offer each other peer support and participate in group activities which bring a sense of normality into their lives.
