About the event

This is a chance for parents and carers of children with Down Syndrome to connect with peers across Victoria. It’s a great chance to meet others from across the state, and to connect with our Family Support Manager Sonia Bonadio. The conversation is informal, so bring your cuppa and any topics or questions you might want to discuss.

Participants will gain knowledge about:

  • Peer connection
  • Information and resource sharing
  • Opportunity to foster informal support across the state
