  • Signposting to both local and national support services;
  • Register you on the co‐ordinator’s local mailing list to keep in touch with what’s going on in your local area, or;

Shropshire’s Family Information Service – The Rainbow Pack is now available as an ebook!

FIS logo

Shropshire’s Family Information Service (FIS) has launched its first Kindle, tablet and smartphone-compatible ebook for families of children with disabilities.

The Rainbow Pack is the first ebook published by the FIS and is available to download to a Kindle, iPhone or iPad from Amazon for just around £0.77 pence, which covers the cost of hosting the ebook on Amazon.

Research shows that parents of children with a disability face additional barriers to accessing accurate, up-to-date and comprehensive information to support them in their role as a parent.  With this in mind, the Family Information Service is keen to make information available through as many routes as possible to make it easy for parents to access the information they need.

The Rainbow Pack includes information about local and voluntary agencies, and is divided into seven main sections:
•    People you may meetRainbow Pack - image
•    Benefits and money
•    Having fun
•    Early years and childcare
•    Education
•    Rights and responsibilities
•    Organisations that can help.

Shropshire’s Family Information Service is a free and confidential service providing impartial information, advice and guidance on a wide range of subjects relating to children and young people aged 0 to 19, and covering all aspects of family life. The FIS can support parents/carers with information and also practitioners who are working with children, young people or families.

The Rainbow Pack ebook is available at Amazon by clicking here.

If you don’t have access to a Kindle or an iPad or iPhone, hard copies of The Rainbow Pack are still available free of charge. To obtain a copy, please call the Shropshire Family Information Service on 01743 254400 or email ShropshireFIS@shropshire.gov.uk.
