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.
Become a member for only $10 per year.
Membership includes an electronic copy of our regular newsletter, invitations to our monthly carer’s café, carer’s café plus (with a guest speaker), carer’s diner, and holiday activities.
*Most of our family events and workshops are free or have minimal fees for members.
