Parent to Parent Connections

Aiming to raise
What we are asking for and why

Supported parents. Stronger families. Better outcomes for children with disability.

“When you are a parent of a child with a disability it’s really important that you have a support network of other parents, to have other parents who have been through what you have been through, who know what it’s like when a child has been at the hospital or has ongoing health issues or when there are issues in playground where they are being rejected.”

EarlyEd’s Parent to Parent program connects parents of children with a disability with other parents and in ways that meet their needs.

The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can provide children with the services that meet their individual needs. It has though, left

  1. family members without targeted support for themselves
  2. EarlyEd with no funding to provide the early family supports.

EarlyEd’s Families Matters approach has underpinned our effective early childhood intervention for over 40 years.

EarlyEd invites you to fund the re-establishment of the Parent-to-Parent program and bring back Parent-to-Parent Connections.
This program will include:

  • Support for over 500 families per year
  • Parents of children with a disability developing the
    program through paid and volunteer roles
  • Sharing of parent-centred resources (eg, family stories,
    videos, etc)
  • Activities and forums that connect families

Please consider supporting this section of our community by direct funding or fundraising on behalf of EarlyEd. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
