(Special Kids Parents Support Group)

In 2007 Kate Ahern and Julie White identified a lack of support for parents, carers and family members that have a child with special needs. As a solution, they set up a peer support group in the area.

The group is now self-sustaining. SKiPS meets on the third Tuesday of every month in the Family Resource Centre from 10.30 am.  It is a time out period for parents to have a cup of tea and a chat in a relaxing environment. The group have also enjoyed pampering, meditation and self-care sessions.

The group is a safe space where you will not be judged.  The get together is also an ideal opportunity for the sharing of ideas and getting practical help with issues. If you have a problem it is very likely that someone else has had a similar experience at some time.

In this informal environment huge amounts of valuable information, contacts and learning are exchanged so that parents access support for themselves and their children.
