For nearly 40 years Extended Families has coordinated and worked closely with volunteers to provide genuine friendship to individuals, and support to their families. Due to a gradual withdrawal of state government funding, this work is now under threat. Help us maintain the social capital of our 200 volunteers across Melbourne that we have worked so hard to build up.
Your support will help children and young people with a disability to overcome barriers, achieve developmental milestones, gain confidence, and above all else develop and maintain a friendship with a caring volunteer. It will also help us advocate for models that continue this genuine relationship based community support.
Thank you for your support.
Living with a disability can be difficult. We support people aged 0-30 and their families in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula to build friendships and connect with their community.Read More
