What is My Time


MyTime groups provide local support for parents and carers of a young child under 16 years with a disability or chronic medical condition.

MyTime groups are for parents and carers who want to connect with others and share their experiences.   Groups provide unique support from other parents who have “been there” or are “there right now”.    MyTime gives parents the chance to socialise, share ideas with others and find out about available community support.    The program has a strong parent education component with research-based parenting information available at group meetings.      We have a variety of guest speakers who visit our group  ( eg service providers with information for parents).



How MyTime works

Each group is supported by four workers – a facilitator for the parents and three play helpers for the children.   The facilitator works with the parent group, helping them get to know each other .   The play helpers leads the children and siblings in play activities such as singing, drawing, playing with toys, reading stories that suit the children's ages and interests  so parents can spend time focusing on catching up with others.     Our groups meet once a week for two hours.  



To be eligible for the group parents/carers  must have a child under 16 who is eligible for the Carer Allowance.   MyTime groups are free for parents and carers.


How to join MyTime

We have two groups which meet on Fridays at the Uniting Church, 710 Lanes Road Bairnsdale.   A 10am – 12pm group and a 12.30-2.30pm group.
