There are a huge range of services and support for parents and carers of young children across Australia. If you are anything like us mothers at Tot Spots, you have been lucky enough to receive much of the information through your local council, medical services and other associations. However we know how easy it can be to misplace all of the many pamphlets, brochures & fridge magnets, or how difficult it can be to find THAT one number when you desperately need.  As we are all about making life easier, we thought we'd compile the most frequently used numbers below for your quick reference*.

 

In the event of an emergency, do not rely on the information provided in this website. IF YOU REQUIRE ASSISTANCE DURING AN EMERGENCY PLEASE DIAL 000.
