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.

Volunteers needed this Children’s Day
Would you be willing to donate a few hours of your time to help save children’s lives? Parent to Parent’s first ever SafeSquares event is happening Sunday 3 March at Bunnings stores nationwide.
SafeSquares aims to help keep kids safe with a designated safe spot for them to use when vehicles are moving in and out of the driveway. Families can decorate a free SafeSquares paver at their local Bunnings to take home.
