Benalla & District Support Group for Children with Special Needs


This group is a parent peer support group proving information, referral, support to families of children with special needs from birth to 21 years of age.

The Group provides opportunities to socialise, share ideas and information with others who understand the rewards and intensity of caring for a child with special needs.  Information on the NDIS rollout for this region is also available along with the opportunity to attend information sessions for further information.

Two newsletters per term are distributed via email or mail, along with information regularly as it arrives (for this information, email address needs to be provided).
