How we can help you

Disabled Children Family help

Are you caring for a child with ‘high or complex medical needs’?

Anyone caring for a baby, child or young adult with complex, medical needs deserves time out for themselves and their family.  KaraHands provides you with this break.

It’s important that we get to know you, your child, and your family, so we can build a trusting relationship.  By working together, we can be creative with the care we provide, bespoke to your child’s individual needs; we can provide friendship and support, as well as introducing you to other families.

Your child shouldn’t have to miss out.  KaraHands allows your child to experience opportunities of friendship, outings, ‘sleep-overs’, and all the other day to day activities and experiences that others take for granted.

Applying for assistance can be daunting so we will guide you through the process so it’s one less thing you have to think about.

As a charity; we appreciate the kind donations of KOHA. We keep a growing garden and some chooks to top things up and the kids love to join in looking after these with us.

We generally cover the cost of the extra daily expenses, and the help from these kind donations eases our finance worries.

This is not a job, but a vocation for us and we ‘Love it’. We believe it is truly voluntary.
We are not part of any social or religious organization, but we do understand the power of divine love.

Koha donations, can be made directly to our door, we are always welcoming of visitors bearing gifts.
