MOIRA services is currently running the Parent to Parent (P2P) program. P2P is a peer support program offering opportunities for parents caring for someone with a disability to provide support to another parent through a common shared experience. There is 6 weeks of free training, with morning or evening sessions. Training starts 6 May in Patterson Lakes or Hampton East.

We want to make sure that carers, service providers and people with a disability can access the local respite information they want and need. Your responses here will help us make the Respite South website and newsletter as useful as possible.

An exhibition at Cube 37 Gallery at The Frankston Arts Centre during April will highlight some stunning artwork from carers and will celebrate the on-going success of the carer respite program at Peninsula Arts Society.

Parents and carers often tell us that navigating the service system can be very difficult. We have a listing of information sources available in the community, to help you know what supports you might be able to access.
