About Us

Disability Connect (formerly The 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 a 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!

We are governed by a board, consisting of 9 members:
