Upcoming events

Waikato Renew Connect & Reflect workshop
Nov 30 @ 9:15 am – 2:45 pm

Parent to Parent’s Renew, Connect & Reflect workshop will help you and other families caring for a child with a disability or health impairment on their parenting journey, providing renewed energy, new connections and new ideas.

Workshop topics include:

  • Growing your support networks
  • Building a resilient family
  • Coping with stress
  • Understanding the effect of grief

It is a great opportunity to reflect on how far you have come and connect with other parents in your area.

The workshop and refreshments are provided at no cost thanks to funding from Achieving Change for Children.

Wellington SibCamp
Nov 30 @ 6:30 pm – Dec 2 @ 3:30 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 Sue at
