Respite and Recreation

The Junction Works’ Respite and Recreation Service provides planned, short-term, time limited breaks from usual caring relationships for families and unpaid carers of children, young people and adults with a disability.

If you have an NDIS package, flexible respite falls within your Community Access and Recreation allocation.


The aim of our Respite and Recreation Service is to provide:
  • planned short-term, time-limited breaks in order to support and maintain the primary care-giving relationship. This is through providing flexible and responsive service delivery in line with the needs of individuals, families and carers
  • connection to services, resources and opportunities that build resilience and reduce the potential for the breakdown of the informal support network of the person with a disability and their carers.
  • a positive experience for the person with a disability by engaging them in age-appropriate, meaningful activities while in respite care. Activities are chosen by the person with disability, their carers and families to suit their values, culture, needs and interests.
