About Families Supporting Families
Families Supporting Families (FSF) is an Incorporated Charity Organisation which was formally launched in 2003. FSF provides opportunities for families in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas with children with special needs to exchange ideas, information and experiences.
FSF was born from almost accidental contact between parents in specialist’s waiting rooms, early intervention programs and in hospital wards when sitting beside their children’s beds. These parents quickly realised that they understood each other; that they could problem solve for each other purely based on first hand experiences.
The FSF committee is made up of volunteers and are families who have experienced the challenges frequently faced when raising a child with a disability. The committee members have developed significant knowledge relating to services and current information on disabilities and special needs issues.
