Become a Support Parent

Register for our Support Parent training and join our 600+ strong team of volunteers.

Often, parents whose children have been diagnosed with a disability just need someone on the same wavelength to speak to; someone who has been there and completely understands.

Are you are a good listener? Do you like to support others? Do you have a child or young person with a disability? 

We provide two days of comprehensive training which looks at communication skills, grief issues and provides the opportunity for personal awareness where parents can consider their ability to support others in similar circumstances.

The course, morning teas and lunches are free.

If you would like more information, please contact us on 0508 236 236 or email either centrallakes@parent2parent.org.nz or cbop@parent2parent.org.nz
