LOVE our kids
INSPIRE our community
One of the most important and effective services we provide is to connect families who are in similar situations. Quite often our ‘other’ friends or family members may say they understand – but sometimes those words can seem empty. To have a child with extra needs is hard to explain to others who simply don’t live it.
At the Umbrella Network we have have found a helpful and gentle way to introduce families who may be travelling a similar path with their children. In a relaxed and calm setting it can be easy to chat over a cup of coffee and share stories. One of our staff or volunteer parents can fascilitate the first meeting making the initial meet more comfortable.
We also have access to Social Workers and Mental Health Professionals should you choose to ask after their services .
Please contact us if you are interested in utilising this service.
Important Note: We must stress that we are not trained professionals and should a situation rise that requres such – we will be happy to contact the right parties for you.
