Kalparrin operates Western Australia’s largest, member-only, online Peer Support Network.
Connect with others in a private and non-judgemental space to share knowledge and experiences, ask questions, seek advice and build resilience as a parent of a child with additional needs.
- Kalparrin Families provides an invaluable information hub for Kalparrin parents and carers to connect with other members to share their knowledge, insight, information and experiences in relation to parenting a child with disabilities. It provides a private and non-judgemental forum in which to ask questions, seek advice and recommendations, discuss coping strategies or simply to catch up.
- Kalparrin Families High Medical Needs is a peer support group for members who have children who require high medicalised care, 24 hours a day. Members are able to support each other through shared knowledge and experiences, ask specialised or diagnosis-specific questions, provide a sounding board for one another as well as emotional support to better cope with developments and transitions.
- Kalparrin Sell, Buy, Donate is a group for Kalparrin members to buy, sell or donate household items, clothing and disability aids and equipment with other Kalparrin members.
- Friends of Kalparrin is a group for service providers to raise issues and topics with Kalparrin members in respect to developing aids, equipment and services of value to parents of children with additional needs.
