Services for Children and Young People with Disabilities

We offer a range of services for Children and Young People with Disabilities. They aim to help them and their carers, family or friends get out, enjoy and share in building a great community.

Playgroups

Our playgroups welcome all children and families, especially if your child has additional needs. These groups are a great way to meet other families, have fun, and make the most of important play opportunities. The learning-based activities encourage your child’s development and skills.

For more information about playgroups in your local area, please contact the Playgroup Development Officer on (03) 9249 4365.

Personal Care and Respite

We can offer your family in-home personal care and respite through our Home and Community Care (HACC) program, if you have a child/young person with a disability.  

Eligibility

If you need access to our HACC program, or have any questions, please contact the intake team on (03) 9249 4494. The team will assess whether you are eligible for these services.

Anyone can make a referral or inquire about services.  Access to services is based on your assessed need.
