Any child aged up to 18

How does it work?

Cara has lots of comfortable family-style homes dotted all over Adelaide and in Murray Bridge, Mt Barker, Port Augusta, Port Pirie and Port Lincoln where children can go for a break to have fun, make new friends and learn new skills.

Grundy respite exterior

Each child has their own room. Living areas and backyards are shared spaces for play with other children.

Our children’s respite services also offer a special program called Kids in Action Program (KAP) where volunteers partner with children to enjoy activities together, including craft, games and play.

A number of our services have created special sensory rooms to support children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and for children in respite to enjoy. Take a photo tour of our Children’s Respite Service in Christies Beach.
