Regional Support - Very Special Kids

Very Special Kids is committed to providing family support across Victoria through offices in Brunswick, Ballarat, Bendigo, Hastings, Pakenham, Port Fairy, Shepparton and Torquay.

We respond to the needs of families in their local communities by providing support through our regional offices. The Family Support Team Regional Coordinators work closely with families to understand their needs and offer appropriate support, such as counselling and advocacy.

In addition to supporting families on an individual basis, Team members in regional offices coordinate local programs and events. This provides families with the opportunity to meet each other, share information and experiences and enjoy some time out together.
