Manawatu SibCamp
May 10 @ 6:30 pm – May 12 @ 3:00 pm

SibCamp is a wonderful opportunity for kids who have a brother or sister with a disability or health issue to have a fun weekend away.

Siblings will learn strategies, share experiences, enjoy outdoor activities and make friends with other kids in similar situations.

There is a great need for SibCamps and our waiting lists can get very long. To avoid anyone missing out, we require a $25 contribution to ensure all available spaces are filled and secured.

Siblings should be aged 8-18 at the time of camp and must not have a disability or health impairment themselves.

If you would like to discuss anything please phone 0508 236 236 or contact Janine at manawatu@parent2parent.org.nz

Bay of Plenty Support Parent Training
May 18 @ 9:00 am – May 19 @ 3:00 pm

Do you have a child with a disability and consider yourself a good listener? Want to help those new to the world of disability? 

Often, parents whose children have been diagnosed with a disability or health issue just need someone to talk to. Hearing others stories who are in similar circumstances and are a bit further down the track, whether it be about the good stuff or the challenging stuff, can be a positive and helpful experience. 

We have an incredible team of support parent volunteers who provide amazing support to families and whānau in need. You can join the team too if you come to our Support Parent Training course where we look at communication skills, grief issues and provide an opportunity for personal awareness where you can consider your ability to support others.

If you have any queries please contact Breanna on 0508 236 236 or email breannat@parent2parent.org.nz

Training, accomodation and meals are provided at no cost thanks to funding from Rotorua Energy Charitable Trust.
