Young people with a disability who have high support needs and their carers will benefit from some additional government funding for respite in the next two years. Alfred Health Carer Services is set to deliver the additional respite through our Recreational Respite Program, commencing immediately!

Parents and carers often tell us that navigating the service system can be very difficult. We have a listing of information sources available in the community, to help you know what supports you might be able to access.
