being a carer
Foster Care provides full and part-time care for children and adults with disability through family based placements. There are different types of fostering, from looking after someone just on weekends to supporting them until they are ready to be independent.
Our Respite services give carers of people with disability the opportunity to take a break from their support role by providing alternative care options for the person they care for. We aim to ensure this experience is both meaningful for the carer and enjoyable for the person with disability.
Our Recreation service arranges leisure activities for people with disability.
This service is available state-wide to children, teenagers and adults. We give priority to people who have high and complex support needs or who are:
- Socially isolated
- Geographically isolated
- Lack appropriate support structures
- Economically disadvantaged
- Experiencing cultural barriers
Education and training on assistive technology for health professionals, carers, and other groups that support people with disability and the ageing population.
