Respite care at breaking point in Wyndham

 

CARERS across Wyndham are at breaking point because of a chronic lack of respite services for children with disabilities.

There are no government-funded overnight or weekend respite services in the municipality, and the state government, which is responsible for funding centres designed to give carers a much-needed break, has no plan for establishing one.

Wyndham Council has vowed to lobby the government to fund facility-based respite services in the city and to work with other agencies to tackle gaps in weekend respite for young people.
