Parent to Parent NZ presents: Navigating the System Workshop

Parent to Parent NZ presents: Navigating the System Workshop

Do you have a disabled child or a child with a health impairment? Learn more about what supports are available and how to access them.

Learning about the various disability support services can be overwhelming for many parents and caregivers. This workshop explores what supports are available in your region, and gives participants the opportunity to hear from professionals who work in the sector. Learn more about support from:

  • Ministry of Social Development (Julie Hiatt)
  • Ministry of Education (Rachel Patrick)
  • Needs Assessment Service Coordination & Explore Specialist Advice (Richard Gould)
  • CCS Disability Action (Michelle Clucas)

Every Navigating the System workshop from Parent to Parent is unique with updated content and speakers, so register today to secure your spot. Many thanks to Mainland Foundation for supporting this event.
