Our free parent support groups connect parents and carers raising children with similar diagnoses or at similar ages and/or developmental stages.
These groups are held online and run for approximately eight-weeks during the school term. They are facilitated by our knowledgeable Peer Navigators, all of whom have lived experience of caring for a family member with disability.
Each week, a professional guest speaker provides practical guidance and strategies to help participants manage issues specifically relevant to their child and their families.

Early childhood intervention, applying for access, developing a Plan, managing funding and disputes.
