Marches Family Network - Home

Marches Family Network was established in 1982 under the auspices of Contact a Family as a small self-help parent group. We became independent in 1995 and have grown into the amazing charity that we are today, actively supporting over 170 families in Herefordshire, Shropshire and the surrounding areas.

We work with families of children and young people aged 0-25 who have a disability or additional needs through a range of services. See table below.
