About the Project

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 using Zoom.

You can also meet face-to-face with Fiona, with a support person if you want. This option requires us to ensure that you, Fiona and any support person can meet safely to avoid the spread of CoVid-19. 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:
