Awhi Ngā Mātua is a new online community for parents of disabled children, and medically fragile tamariki.

The parent-led community is designed to be a safe place for parents of disabled children. Members of the community will be able to celebrate their children, find solidarity and support, and get in touch with people who understand them and their experiences.

Awhi Ngā Mātua aspires to be more than a community, it aims to be a movement that anyone with a disabled child can join.
