Working Together Makes Us Stronger

History of How We Came to Be

In 1991, a group of families were organizing a new support network. They needed help in the form of office space, equipment and administration. Several organizations in London gave freely of their time and knowledge. These organizations formed an informal network to continue to help one another. We have a common vision of the future and have similar philosophical bases. This affiliation of autonomous organizations decided that by sharing human resources, equipment, policies, issue exploration, training and community connections, each organization would gain - yet no one would lose their identity or their particular interest in the people for whom the organizations were created. We share what we have with other groups of people who are struggling to organize and make their voices heard.
