Sibling Surf Day – Coastal Bay of Plenty
Dec 4 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Come surf with us! A fun-filled day for Kiwi kids eight years and over who have a disabled brother or sister.

We would love to have you join us at our Sibling Surf Day! Experience the exhilaration of surfing the waves at Ohope Beach. This sheltered patch of ocean combined with soft sands and shallow waters creates waves perfect for those new to the art of surfing, all the way through to experienced wave-riders! All equipment will be supplied from soft top surfboards, wetsuits and rash-vests to sunscreen.

Parent to Parent supports New Zealand families and whānau with disabled children or children with health impairments. We offer a range of services including disability information packs, workshops, support for parents and caregivers, programmes for siblings, and fantastic events like this one!

We can’t wait to see you! This event is sure to be popular, so register today to secure your spot! Many thanks to Whakatāne District Council for generously supporting this event.

Parent Support Group (Kati Kati)
Dec 6 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Grab a free coffee and chat with other parents and carers who know what it’s like to care for a disabled child, a neurodiverse child, or a child with health impairments.

Parent to Parent hosts monthly Parent Support Groups in Kati Kati to support carers and parents just like you. These groups are a safe space for family and whānau to share their experiences, their challenges, their triumphs, and to learn from each other in an open and 100% judgement-free environment. No topic is too ‘weird’, no question too ‘out there’. We get it, and we are here to help.

So if you’d like to share a struggle, celebrate a success, raise a concern, or simply have a cuppa and chat with other parents and carers in your area, you are always welcome at our Parent Support Group. Children are welcome too! Drop in for as long or as short a time as you want. And did we mention there’s free coffee??

Time: 10:30am—12pm
