Parenting Special Children have a growing team of staff, volunteers and sessional practitioners who bring a wide range of skills, knowledge and expertise to the charity.

We are based in Reading and are fortunate to be based in a beautiful Edwardian building which provides office space and a venue for some of the Reading courses and workshops that the charity offer to families.
The majority of our courses and workshops take place during term time which enables PSC to offer job and volunteering opportunities which provide flexibility, especially important as we are a user led charity and have children and young people with special needs.
