Welcome to Kalparrin
Kalparrin takes its name from an Aboriginal word meaning “help carry the load”.
At Kalparrin we help families of children with disabilities and special needs to carry their load by providing practical information and support, and connecting them with the services that they need. Kalparrin helps families connect with other families in similar situations through Parent Link, and to take time out through regular respite activities.
Anyone is welcome to stop by our Visitor Lounge at Princess Margaret Hospital. It’s a comfortable place to wait for appointments, have a coffee, browse brochures, chat with our Family Support Officers, or share experiences with other families.
Please contact us if you’d like to discuss anything concerning your child with special needs.
