Parents Virtual Gatherings:

Family Network NZ and Complex Care Group are family led change agencies working for other families who have a son or daughter with an intellectual disability and or complex needs. During the month of May we hosted four successful virtual meetings via zoom with guest speakers from Ministry of Health, Ministry of Social Development and a member of the System Transformation team.

So we scheduled another four virtual family gatherings starting tomorrow 4th June 11.30am till 1pm – Julie Hook and Sally Jackson from Ministry of Education will talk about education issues and concerns and will answer questions. Please join the Zoom meeting anytime from 11.15am so we can start promptly at 11.30am.
