Extended Families AustraliaExtended Families provide friendship and support to a child who has a disability.
Volunteers spend time with a child on a regular basis-either in the family's home, the volunteer's home or in a community setting, and works with the family to maximize the child's physical, emotional and developmental opportunities.
Activities can include:
-:- reading stories or playing games
-:- going for a walk to the park
-:- social and recreational outings
-:- participating in school functions
-:- assisting parents with medical appointments
Through visits, friendship and family support, a volunteer creates opportunities for a child to participate in the local community, enhance their life experiences, feel valued and, ultimately, reach their individual potential.
Extended Families is a not-for-profit incorporated association that provides support, respite, significant social relationships and community participation for children with disabilities and their families.
