Rainbow Families has received a funding grant to develop a new website. The $36,000 grant will ensure that the new website makes reaching our community, and finding information more accessible for all, especially parents with a disability.

The new website will be inclusive in its design, visual representation and accessibility. There will be easier access to events, ways to be part of our advocacy work, and register for events.  It aims to remove barriers faced by parents with a disability to access much needed information, support and connection. It will increase a sense of belonging and participation.

During the website development we consulted with parents with a disability or parents who have children with a disability.  If you are a parent with a disability it’s not too late to get involved. We would love to consult you on the design and also be part of user testing.

Principle & Co have been contracted to develop the website.  As part of the new website the content has been reviewed and new photographs will depict the diverse range of families in our community. During the recent “ Big Bright Sparkly Days Camp” many parents and children volunteered to be part of this project. Thanks to those families who will feature in the new website and promotional material.

We are grateful for this amazing funding from Northcott enabling our community organisation to be accessible to all families.
