The Interchange network of agencies provide family respite and social opportunities for children and young people with a disability through a variety of programs.
Programs may be individual or group based and are designed to provide social opportunities, life skill development, friendship and support in a fun, supportive and safe environment. Programs include holiday camps, day outings, buddy programs, sibling and parent programs.
Interchange Host Program (Respite for children)
The Host Program matches a child or young person with a disability with a host volunteer, who provides care for the child on a regular basis, such as one weekend a month, one day a fortnight or a few hours each week.
The Host Program provides opportunities for friendship and positive experiences for children with a disability, as well as provides families with a break from their caring role.
