Programmes for Parents

By: Recreate Auckland  06-Dec-2011

Not only is Recreate's focus on the young person with a disability, we also place high value on supporting the family as a whole. Therefore we like to offer programmes to the parents of the young people we work for. Currently we are offering our 'Mother's Retreat' respite weekends, two - four times per year. (as typically the Mothers are the primary caregivers)

These weekends provide an opportunity where Mothers can get together and share experiences, network, relax and be pampered for a whole weekend at beautiful Long Bay on the North Shore. As well as the friendships and support networks developed, a Mother's Retreat weekend from Recreate can provide any or all of the following: goodie bags, massages, beauticians, counselling services, yoga, art workshops, long walks on the beach, great food, dvd evenings and more.. As one Mother recently said after attending, 'I feel recharged, energized and ready to hit the ground running..'

Event 4

We’ll head to one of many amazing beach spots in the North East, have Fish&Chips in the park, cruise the local shops at Warkworth, and of course finish the day with icecream. We’re gonna take a trip up to the beautiful Goat Island Marine Reserve, and cruise around the Island in a glass bottomed boat – you may even get to see a sting ray.


Auckland Junior Programmes

These range from three-day adventure development weekend/camps, weekend Getaways to different locations around New Zealand, and of course our School Holiday programmes.

By getting our Junor participants involved in our programmes at a younger age this gives them the opportunity to increase their social.
