Partnership Model & Acknowledgements



When it comes to supporting children, youth and adults with disabilities as well as their families, no single community agency can meet every need. Together, we’re better.


The WRFN is underpinned by an innovative partnership model of several community service providers, who share a common vision for family support.


We have created a single network for families; a network that is recognized by partners as a valued community resource offering peer-to-peer mentor support.


Known for representing the family voice, WRFN has become a trustworthy and active participant at several planning tables, and a great resource for local studies and research.


A key community resource for families with children, youth and adults with special needs – WRFN is seen by partners as an integral part of the service delivery system.
