What we do

We offer family support, events and counselling to families with disabled children.

At Aiming Higher we recognise how rewarding raising a child with a disability can be, but we also understand the challenges families face. Whether you would like a family support worker to help you face some of these challenges, counselling to help you work through things yourself, or a chance to make friends with others in similar circumstance and have fun, we are here to help.  There is more information on the serices we offer below. If you’d like to complete a referral form so that you can access any or all of these services, you can do so here. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Aiming Higher very soon.


We support parents, carers and siblings of people with disabilities or medical conditions.
