What is MyTime?
MyTime groups provide support for mothers, fathers, grandparents and anyone caring for a child with a disability or chronic medical condition.
MyTime groups are currently in Nowra and Ulladulla and are supported by two workers – a facilitator and a play helper.
How does MyTime work?
MyTime groups provide a place to socialise, to discuss, to get information, and to support and be supported by other carers.
Facilitators work with group members, helping them get to know each other and learn more about the services and supports in their area. Members choose what they would like to discuss in their groups, with help from the facilitator. Depending on what the group wants to do, the facilitator might guide group activities, provide resources or invite guest speakers.
Play helpers keep children, including under school aged siblings, busy and active in activities such as singing, drawing, playing with toys, blocks or sand so members can spend time catching up with one another.
Currently, MyTime is run during school terms as follows:
Ulladulla – Tuesdays 10am – 12pm
Nowra – Thursdays 10am – 12pm
This program is generously funded by Playgroups NSW.
