At Creating Connections Australia we know how important it is to further your knowledge and understanding – especially as a person with diverse needs or as a partner / parent in a support role.

We offer people with diverse needs or their partners / parents the opportunity to take part in our ongoing Connecting Program. The Connecting Program aims to provide a pathway for self-empowerment and further understanding and support.

Participants of the program (once selected) will receive access to a full day of Creating Connections Australia’s workshop/s, free of charge, within a six month period. Participants will be able to select the workshop/s they attend from our scheduled events that are available to the public.

People with diverse needs or their partners / parents are welcome to apply to take part in the Connecting program, by emailing to the following details:
