Winners 2017 Excellence Awards ECIA NSW/ACT

We have won the 2017 ECIA NSW/ACT Excellence Award for Outstanding Family Centred and Culturally Responsive Practice! The Now and Next program is a breakthrough peer network and family leadership initiative for parents of young children with disabilities or delays in their development.

The programme aims to provide an opportunity for families to inform, support and motivate each other to aim high and see new opportunities for their child now and in the future. Since 2015, 190 parents have taken part in this evidence-based 8-week group programme and we are on track to reach 340 by June 2018. Now and Next is delivered by paid peer facilitators who receive training and leadership development to support their effective work with families.

We also presented our progamme and method at that conference and received overwhelmingly good feedback.
