ADACAS and Advocacy for Inclusion have started a project to find the best ways to support parents with disabilities. The project will also look at the things that make it harder to be a parent with a disability.
They have asked Dr Fiona Tito Wheatland to help them with this. Fiona has been working for a long time to improve child protection and family support systems. She has also worked for a long time with the disability community.
Fiona wants to talk to parents with disabilities to find out what would help them.
You can talk to Fiona on the phone or Fiona will meet with you on-line using Zoom. You can also meet face-to-face with Fiona. You can also ask to join a group chat with other parents with disabilities.
Everything you say to Fiona will be private.
You can contact Fiona to arrange a meeting by:

Some ideas you can think about
- Tell us about times you have had problems in your parenting role because you have a disability.
- Tell us about a time that because you are a parent with disability you have been treated badly.
- All parents need support to help them be good parents. What supports would help you to be the best parent you can be?
- What would help you in your parenting role, if you wanted to do more things in your community?
- As a parent with a disability, what can the government do to help you?
