The SNAP Directory is the one place to find all the help and advice that is available to me for my son's particular needs.

Thanks to the SNAP Directory I don't feel so alone, knowing there are so many places to go for help and advice and things to do.

Welcome to the home of SNAP's Information Services.

One of SNAP's primary aims is to inform parents, so that they can grow in strength and knowledge and become better equipped to give the best possible help to their children. The following range of SNAP Services work towards this aim. Simply click on the image or link below to find out more...

SNAP Directory

Compiled, written, researched and produced by SNAP with the aim to benefit everyone in Essex concerned with the welfare of children and young people with special needs and disabilities, our Online Directory aims to provide a comprehensive guide to useful contacts to point you in the right direction.

Developed over SNAP's 21 year history, entries in the directory have been identified during the course of our everyday work as a charity supporting families who have children with disabilities.
