Founder Sally Livingstone has provided respite for many babies and children over the years, giving mothers of special needs children a much-needed break, drawing on her experience and expertise as a Paediatric Registered Nurse.  

However she had long dreamed of being able to expand her passion for those in need to help more mothers and children within their own homes.   To make this happen she founded Spectrum Mothers Support Society in 2005 to support a team of Caregivers for families in need, and so make a difference in the lives of many more young mothers and children.

Today, Sally continues to be very involved as the Program Manager, co-ordinating the services that Spectrum is able to offer.
