" For mothers with an intellectual disability or learning difficulty."  

Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) fund this service which enables us to offer a range of supports for mothers with an intellectual disability or learning difficulty.

Our vision is for mothers with an intellectual disability or learning difficulty to be accepted as active and valued community members.

To be eligible for our service women need to have the care of their children or have a restoration plan in place.
