Our new independent office space at Depot Hill Old Pre-school, is completely pram and wheelchair friendly , heaps of parking and a relaxed informal environment.
The Umbrella Lounge is open to any family member of a child with a disability or special needs, regardless of degree of severity or type of impairment.
We provide free tea and coffee facilities and a welcome haven for families needing a willing ear and friendly support, or just a place to relax between appointments or after school drop off.
At Umbrella we understand the issues involved in caring for children with special needs and are available to talk with parents and other family members who visit the Centre. We can offer support and provide information to assist in overcoming many of the daily living difficulties that many parents of children with special needs experience. We can help you find information about specific conditions, services, equipment and agencies as well as support groups and entitlements.
There is no charge for these services although we do encourage families to become Umbrella members and get some great benefits!
Support Groups Meeting Space
Support groups can make use of the Umbrella Drop-in Centre during weekdays, free of charge, as their meeting place.
