Parent Link

Hampshire based Parentlink, offers parents and their additional needs children help and support through our team of experienced and dedicated staff. 

With each family we meet and every corner we turn we face new challenges which we strive to add to our list of services to ensure continued and much needed support to our community. 

Our current services are all funded using grant money obtained through a variety of sponsors, to who, we are all truly grateful.

There are a range of clubs and activities on offer from fishing to movie clubs!

Parent Link Activities 


Wet Wheels

The ride of a lifetime on an accessible powerboat, provided by a not for profit organisation, with some rides starting from Ocean Village.

Wetwheels provides the opportunity for all disabled people, including those with profound and complex disabilities, to access the sea in a safe, stimulating and rewarding way on board specially-built, fully-accessible powerboats.

By offering the opportunity to experience the sea as active participants we build confidence and improve physical and mental wellbeing.

Active Nation - SEND Activities

Commissioned by Southampton City Council, our short breaks provide children and young people with disabilities, or additional needs, an opportunity to spend time away from their parents, engage in fun activities and enjoy time with their friends.

They offer parents/carers a break from their caring responsibilities and time to spend with other family members and to catch-up on other daily tasks.

Times of sessions: 9.30am – 1.00pm

Please note that because of the funding received through the Local Authority, all activities for children and young people under the age of 18 are restricted to people living within Southampton City’s boundary in possession of a Max Card Plus, or those families open to Jigsaw. Furthermore, all of our activities will give priority to children and young people living at the family home in order to provide respite for unpaid carers, though we will be happy to accept members living in supported living if places are available.

A free taster session and full application is mandatory before accessing our activities. The application process has a quick turnaround of just 2 working days, but taster sessions can only be booked using existing dates in either our Playschemes or Saturday Clubs. Therefore please allow at least one month from point of contact to point of entry into our services so we have time to book a convenient taster session. A carer is required to attend the taster session with the child or young person.
