Peer Support

At the Family Centre, we know that peer support from a person who has shared a similar experience to you, can really help.  We host forums (both online and face-to-face), support groups, and social events to help families connect.


Online Parents' Community

Families need support in all corners of Western Australia. With more than 500 members, our Online Parents' Community is the largest local type 1 parent discussion group in Australia. Parents can log in at any time, from anywhere, and post a question or share their thoughts about life with type 1 with a community of others who really get it.

Join our Online Parents Community today

Connect up with the type 1 community on the school holidays with our dynamic program of events and excursions – fun for the whole family! Jump to our events page, and sign up for our newsletter, so you know what's coming up.
