Every child deserves to grow up safe and loved. Unfortunately, children with disability are 2-3 times more likely than other children to experience abuse and neglect.

Parenting a child with disability brings along a host of challenges: extraordinary childcare demands, social isolation and stigmatisation, financial stress, and frustration. When struggling parents can’t get the support they need to cope with these challenges, their children can be at risk of neglect and mistreatment.

That’s why we’re working to make sure that every parent has the resources and support they need to help their children develop to their full potential.

With your gift, you can give crucial support to struggling parents and prevent abuse and neglect before they occur.

Your gift can support programs like the Strengthening Parents Support Program, which provides parents of children with disability the opportunity to meet other local families in a supportive setting and participate in internationally recognised parent education programs like Stepping Stones Triple P.

And this is just one way that MacKillop Family Services is supporting families. Our parenting support programs also help families navigate a range of challenging circumstances like:

  • Mental health issues
  • Substance abuse
  • Family breakdown or dispute
  • Illness, hospitalisation, or bereavement

You can give children, young people and families the support and resources they need to address these issues and more, and empower them to create safe, nurturing environments where all family members are empowered to reach their full potential.

Please give today.
