LOVE our kids
INSPIRE our community
The difference between a helping hand and an outstretched palm is a twist of the wrist.
~Laurence Leamer, King of the Night
In 2009 The Umbrella Network secured a small amount of funding from Disability Services which enabled us to have an office space as well as a part-time staff member. Cootharinga North Queensland have not only assisted by Auspicing our organisation but in 2009 – 2011 invited us to utilise their office space to work from. Its coffee room , offices and amenities were well used! For more information about the great work they do you can visit them at www.cootharinga.org.au
The Umbrella Network would not be the organisation it is today without the time and dedication of many volunteers. They offer their help during Mothers Respite Weekends, Family Fun Days, at the office and in fundraising.
We greatly appreciate the time, effort and care shown by our volunteers and would like to thank The many Umbrella mums,dads, grandparents & friends who help out in anyway they can. . As our organisation grows , so does our need for more help! If you would like to be a part of our network in a volunteering capacity please contact our office at email@example.com .
