Connecting parents with their peers

MyTime is a unique service for parents and carers of children with a disability, developmental delay or concern about their child’s development.

It’s a regular meeting place where you can unwind, socialise, discuss, get information, and support and be supported by other parents and family carers. It’s a world away from appointments and therapy. It’s support for you!

Members get to plan the group sessions around their specific needs as carers.

MyTime Marrickville is run by parent-peer workers who have shared experience in raising a child with disabilities and delays.

During MyTime we will:

  • Chat over tea/coffee – In some MyTime sessions, members relax over a coffee, talk about their week and share advice and information.
  • Learn something new – In some sessions, the facilitator or a guest speaker might lead discussions on a topic of interest.
  • Take care of yourself – sometimes, the group might have fun with an activity aimed at helping members relax and look after their well-being.

This program is for

Parents, primary carers and family members of children with disability, developmental delay or neurodivergence aged 0-18 years old.
