Support for parents of children with disability

We provide opportunities for parents of children with disability or developmental delay to get together to share common experiences and concerns. This is through The Strengthening Parent Support Program.

Families or carers can:

  • take part in peer support groups
  • establish networks with other families or carers in their local community
  • get information about services which may help in their parenting role.
