Extended Families is a not-for-profit organisation operating in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. We facilitate positive connections in the community for children (and young people) with a disability and provide support to their families - We believe everyone deserves a life full of friendship and fun! We seeks to widen social networks, empower individuals, promote inclusion and strengthen the bonds people have within their local area. Children and families who are supported by us have access to a wide range of flexible support and programs including individualised volunteer matching program for social, recreational and respite support; play groups; friendship groups for parent / carer peer support and a range of social events. Our social events and programs focus on introducing children and their families to new activities, experience, develop new skills and most importantly having fun!
