Disability Connect is the new trading name of Parent and Family Resource Centre Inc.

Parent & Family Resource Centre Inc. was established in Auckland the early 1990’s as an umbrella organisation to support families raising a child with a disability.

In May 2014 Disability Connect moved to new premises at 3B Olive Road, Penrose.  We have spacious, modern offices with one large seminar room available for use by other disability organisations (feel free to enquire about this).  We are disability accessible and have a visitors carpark at our front door.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
