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.
