MyTime groups provide support for mothers, fathers, grandparents and anyone caring for a child with a disability or chronic medical condition.
It’s a place for you to unwind and talk about your experiences. It’s a world away from appointments and therapy. It’s support for you.
MyTime groups also provide you with trusted parenting information and support learning new skills. By looking after your own wellbeing, you are looking after your child.
