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.  When the organisation was formed we were based at what was the original Greenlane Hospital.  We moved to bigger premises in Onehunga in the early 2000’s at Princes Street, Onehunga.  We had other tenants with us in that premise including Auckland Down Syndrome Association, Cystic Fibrosis Auckland Branch and Tamaki Ngati Kapo (a support organisation for the vision impaired Maori community).

In May 2014 Disability Connect moved to new premises at 3B Olive Road, Penrose.  We have spacious, modern offices with two large seminar rooms 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!
