External events and training
On this page you will find events and training that is relevant to the majority of our members.
We also hear about events which are specific to certain regions/suburbs but there are too many to post here. Where possible, these will be brought to your attention via your local Support Group Coordinator or Regional Parent Support person.
If you are looking for specific activities etc in your area please call or email the Family Support team.
