FIRIS started out in Victoria in 2011, but has expanded into NSW after receiving overwhelming calls from parents in that state asking for help.  We now have two locations – Melbourne and Sydney.

We want to hear your stories and provide help to anyone who wants to support our aims.
We are happy to arrange interviews and access to hundreds of parents who want to tell their stories.
Media inquiries or assistance requiring immediate response:
