Get Involved and Help Us Maintain Vital Family Supports
While EarlyEd receives some government funding via NDIS, this does not cover the full cost of running EarlyEd’s programs. As a not for profit organisation, EarlyEd relies heavily on support from the community to help fund vital additional services, not covered by NDIS. We need you to get involved. Without the generous support of our community, EarlyEd would struggle to continue to offer these services including:
- Support for babies born with disability: The first year of life is the most critical in terms of a child’s development. With families facing waiting lists to receive an NDIS package, EarlyEd supports babies at this vital time with immediate early intervention.
- Early support for families at the point of diagnosis: Families who have a formal diagnosis struggle to access immediate support until they receive their NDIS package. With long wait lists for NDIS and then to access services, supports like playgroups provide vital support for families when they are at their most vulnerable. We also support families to access early intervention who don’t quite fit the criteria for NDIS funding.
- Supporting the Needs of the Whole Family: Supporting the health and wellbeing of the family as a whole helps to ensure the best outcomes for the child. However, NDIS packages focus on the needs of the child only, providing no support for families. EarlyEd delivers additional services to support the family as whole including counselling and crisis support.
- Advocating for inclusion of children with disabilities in their community
