Respite Services provides recreational and educational service options to meet the needs of families and friends caring for a person with a mental illness.

The services are run either casually, such as our Art classes, or as part of a weekly, on-going program such as New Moves which runs for 16 weeks. We can also provide a short-term stay in one of our Respite Centres at Manly or Gundair.  All of our programs are designed to develop skills and promote a supportive environment for the person with a mental illness and their carer.

We are located in Illawarra, Northern Beaches, Sydney Inner West and Riverina/ Murray. Each region offers different services and is run by dedicated Support Workers. To find out more about the services available in your area, visit our list of Services and Programs
