Individualised one-off visitations can also be arranged upon request from an experienced Peer Supporter. This support is offered prior to an operation, post-discharge, or later on in life when individuals feel they need support from an experienced Peer Supporter who has had a similar experience.

The ChildLimbs program, aims to support families with children who have acquired or were born with limb differences.

We provide an atmosphere of fun, positivity and creativity, enabling each child to create organic friendships and follow their interests. We use a play-based model of inclusion, that encompasses the whole family, especially siblings. We hold regular social groups, school holiday programs and carers events. All Stars is about building relationships within the family unit, with other families on the same journey and creating an inclusive and loving community.
