All groups and programs are facilitated by experienced disability staff. They are a great opportunity to be involved in a structured social program within a safe and non-judgemental environment. We aim to increase social development and to foster an inclusive and creative culture, to actively participate in the community. Parents have the opportunity to receive resources and advice on strategies relating to issues that may be of concern with a carer support environment. Through attending a regular group both parents and children are able to build a supportive network of both formal and informal supports.
