Iris is a project in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire providing support and information to parents of children and young people with disabilities.
The remit of the Iris website was to provide useful information on many issues such as health and social care but to also involve service users online and allow them to support each other via the website.
The Ask Iris website holds pages of information about how parents may access support. The resources section includes an extensive directory of over 900 support organisations, a jargon buster tool, frequent questions and useful links. Website visitors can take part in polls and give their views about issues which affect them and their family. They can also ask Iris to help them with a problem as well as sign up for the newsletter (using our Make Mail e-newsletter system).
The Ask Iris website is hosted by Green Hosting.
