Children and Young People’s Disability Support

What the service offers

Children’s Disability Support Services provide a caring and social environment for children and young people aged from 5 to 20 years old who have a disability.

All programs provide an enriching environment where children and young people can engage with the community and learn new skills. Our programs also offer support for families in their home or through overnight and day respite options.

Our trained and experienced staff create a warm and welcoming environment that encourages interaction and inclusion. Parents and carers can relax knowing their child(ren) are receiving personalised support.

Community Day Activities

The Community Day Activity program is available on weekends and during school holidays. You can check out our 2018 school holiday program here: School Holiday Program: January 2018

The structured, recreational care program is a great way for children and young people to engage with the community, be themselves and have fun.

The wide range of community-based activities are designed around the interests of each group to provide an opportunity for children and young people to develop social skills, make new friends and maintain relationships.

Transport to activities is via a minivan and/or utilising public transport.

Overnight Support Service

The program is based in Oaklands Park at ‘Montrose House’, a safe environment where children and young people can develop social and physical skills.
