Supporting individuals, families and carers with tailored respite experiences



Access Foundation’s Respite services support your individual goals and can assist you, your family and carers to take a break from daily routines.

We have many options to support children and adults with a wide range of disabilities and health needs.

Whether your goals are to be more independent, enjoy new experiences, meet new people or take up a new activity, we can support you.

Who can use Access Foundation’s Respite services?

  • We provide specialist Respite options for children and adults living with disability, from the ages of 6 to 64. We also provide specialist respite support for people living with high and complex needs.

  • Respite can be accessed for a planned rest or for emergency situation, and may be used often or once-off.

  • We can assist you to create a respite plan that works best for you and your family.

Access Foundation can provide individual respite at your home or in the community to support your daily routine. This can range from a few hours to a few days, and is totally flexible and responsive to your individual needs.

Respite for many people is about getting out and enjoying recreational and social activities. Access Foundation can support you to enjoy any individual recreational pursuits, and we also support many community-based programs for groups.
