ABOUT PARENT TO PARENT
Every year hundreds of thousands of Kiwi families face the unique challenges of caring for a baby, child or young adult who is differently-abled, neurodiverse or has medical conditions. Whether parents discover this from diagnosis in the first few years, or it’s the result of an accident or illness, it’s never planned, and the lives of all family members adjust forever. Parent to Parent has been walking beside these families for the past 35 years with nationwide: Information on over 3600 different conditions and anything about them. Trained volunteer Support Parents to connect with new parents. Workshops and camps for parents and the brothers and sisters of children with disabilities. Services such as Altogether Autism and Care Matters. No other organisation in New Zealand offers this free, confidential support.
