Co-ordinator - Lee Thomson
Our Family Options Program offers respite for 32 families who have a child with a disability aged between 0 - 12 years. Families will be able to mix and match respite from a range of options. This can include:
- In home respite
- Community access
- Highly structured small group activities
- Inclusion in local activities e.g. swimming lessons, music festival, eumundi
- Anything else that can be described as respite for the family
The program also has funding to support the establishment of small network groups where a guest speaker, chosen by the families, is able to offer helpful tips on common areas of interest.
Families can only access the program by registering with Disability Services and specifying that they are seeking this type of respite. To register with Disability Services please contact the intake officer on 5352 7200.
