Families Supporting Families is an inclusive organisation for the WHOLE family of a child with additional needs. We offer peer-to-peer support in a friendly supportive environment, coffee mornings, occasional nights out, educational workshops with guest speakers, and school holiday events for families in the greater Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas. Parenting a child with special needs presents it's own joys and challenges, we believe a strong social network and access to relevant information can help along the way.
We value the stories and experiences of our members as we celebrate the uniqueness of our children.
