EVENTS UPDATE: Face to face events can be resumed under Alert Level 2. We will be offering a mix of face to face and remote support groups—these will vary by region. All workshops will be conducted remotely until at least the end of May. Any scheduled virtual events will go ahead as planned. All face to face events will follow guidance from the Ministry of Health around screening, hygiene/cleaning, physical distancing, maximum numbers and contact tracing records. Please contact your Regional Coordinator for more information on events in your area.
Parent to Parent
Often raising a child with a disability 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.
We connect new families with specially-trained volunteer support parents who have a family member with the same or similar disability to your child.
Living with a brother or sister who has a disability can be challenging. We run programmes to support siblings to thrive in their own, unique family environment.
Our dedicated research team provides free information to families, and those involved in a family's care, on nearly 4,000 conditions from the very rare to the more common.
