Parent Support Group

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.
In September, we have a special opportunity for our Parent Support Group. Julie Hiatt from the Ministry of Social Development will be in the meeting room at Richmond Town Hall to answer your questions about different benefits and allowances for children with disabilities. You can drop in during the session and get the information you need around:
*Child Disability Allowance
*Disability Allowance
*Special Foods/Essential Needs.
If there is anything else you want to know, please contact me and I will ask Julie for you.

Parent to Parent hosts monthly Parent Support Groups in Richmond, 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??
