We support and connect the families of disabled people throughout Aotearoa

Often having a disabled or neurodiverse family member is an experience that isn’t planned, and we know it can be a challenging journey. We can inform, educate, inspire and support you as you navigate your way through your family’s experience with disability. Our services are free and confidential.

Our range of services are designed to support parents and whānau of disabled family members.

From connecting parents and supporting siblings to providing information on thousands of conditions, we are here to help you navigate your family’s experiences with disability.

"I cannot praise Parent to Parent enough. From the very first phone call I was no longer in isolation... The next day I was contacted and given details and in the post I received information that I had not found anywhere else and has been so useful."
"I look forward to catching up with the regulars and hear about the highs and lows of the month, laugh and cry together in a safe environment and plan on where to next. Thank you for holding space for us."

"I'm so glad I have finally found Parent to Parent, after searching far and wide and only coming up with overseas support organisations. I was thrilled there is actually support for New Zealand families in New Zealand."
