The Evaluation of the DADHC Demonstration Support Networks Program investigates how far it went to meet its intended outcomes of establishing support networks for the young people with a disability, their parents and siblings. The seven support networks were established to support unmet needs of the young people with a disability (8-18 years), their siblings (up to 18 years of age) and their parents. The networks were established in rural, regional and metropolitan New South Wales, with a particular focus on families from CALD and Indigenous backgrounds. This project has the potential to lead to improved methods of service delivery and support to the whole family of a child with a disability.
