The program provides regular planned short term respite care for Jewish children aged 0-16 years with another Jewish volunteer family and helps in situations where children are at risk or need some support due to factors including:

  • Families experiencing loss or disruption or illness or feeling isolated
  • Parents who are having difficulties managing children
  • Families involved in a situation of child abuse or domestic violence

Family to family respite provides a positive link for the child and family with another Jewish family in the community as well as a different experience of family and relationships for children who may have had many difficulties in their own family.

If you want to know how you can make a substantial difference to a child in the community contact Charmaine on 9302 8000 or c.silove@jewishcare.com.au
