Parent to Parent NZ presents: Getting A Break Workshop

Parent to Parent NZ presents: Getting A Break Workshop

Do you support a disabled family member? Learn how new funding flexibility can be used to create tailor-made breaks for you and your whānau.

This brand new workshop takes a look at how primary caregivers and the people they support are going beyond traditional forms of respite to create more authentic and meaningful breaks for their families and whānau. In the course of this one-day workshop you will:

  • Identify obstacles to ‘getting a break’
  • Understand what funding is available
  • Hear real life stories from families
  • Create a vision for the future
  • Learn how to apply Enabling Good Lives principles to your ‘breaks’

This event is sure to be popular, so register today to secure your spot! Many thanks to Care Matters and Te Pou for supporting this event.

Tuesday 6 July, 2021

Details: 9:30am—2:30pm | The Link, 4 Te Aroha Street, Claudelands, Hamilton 3216
Cost: Free thanks to funding from Te Pou | Lunch will be provided
