Our community centres provide a break for the carer and the person they support.
As a carer, the opportunity to take a break and hand over some responsibility is important for everyone’s wellbeing. Meeting new people and experiencing a change of scenery is also vital for the person you support. That’s where our community centres can help. They’re a great way to get a little extra support.
So how does it work? We have five centres in Victoria, offering a range of activities and support. We know it’s important for you to access respite easily and it needs to be flexible – one size doesn’t fit all. Some people even like to have an overnight stay.
If you’re non-English speaking, there are great activities available through our Multicultural Wellness Centre.
You can call our community centres directly to ask how they’ll work for you.
