SPECIAL NEEDS UNLIMITED GROUP (SNUG)
Retreats Connecting Families
The SNUG program provides a retreat for families caring for a child with a rare health condition. SNUG aims to create a relaxed environment for families to build on their strengths and develop friendships with others in similar situations.
The retreats are held in the Hunter area of NSW. Retreats are held between September to May each year. Approximately five families attend each retreat.
SNUG is coordinated through the Family Action Centre of The University of Newcastle and funded by the Steve Waugh Foundation.
The SNUG Program received an Honourable Mention at a recent international award ceremony - the 2011 Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) Annual Award. This award recognises outstanding collaborations between universities and communities worldwide, with the aim of supporting and encouraging community well-being.
