PALS is a new Inclusive Supported Playgroup Program being piloted in Prospect, Mt Gambier and Whyalla. 

What are PALS Playgroups?

PALS is an Inclusive Supported Playgroup Program. Each PALS program reserves 5 places for children with a disability and 5 are open to other families. Together with the PALS Program Facilitator, the families get to know each other in the first 2-3 weeks. The families decide what cultural, sport and recreation activities they would like to participate in. The PALS program facilitator then organises and invites the cultural, sport or rec (CSAR) organisations in to co-facilitate the session. This approach provides opportunities for children with disability to access and try different activities in a familiar, supportive environment.
