What we do

SWAN Australia knows there is a need to reach out and connect with other families who are on similar journeys to limit isolation. We understand what it is like not to have a diagnosis, to have been misdiagnosed or have a rare genetic condition. That is why our main objective is to provide peer to peer support through our various events:

• Family Days
• Parent Dinners
• Dad’s Group
• Mum’s Group
• SWAN Playgroup
• SWAN Grandparents Group
• Siblings Group (starting July)
• Workshops

We also do systemic advocacy around:
• Obtaining a diagnosis through genetic or genomic testing
• The NDIS
• Disability
• Health and hospitals
• Education

Other ways we support SWAN families:
• Provide care packs for SWAN families in ICU or those who are in hospital for long periods of time.
• Newsletters featuring a parent story and other news relevant for our families
• Social media support
• Buddy system
• Parent telephone support line
• Messenger support

We pride ourselves on our personalised service and will go that extra little bit for our members, particularly in times of need. We strive for all SWAN families to be well supported.
