CARERS ACT’s new Isaacs Respite Cottage was launched on Friday by Mick Gentleman.
The cottage provides carers with a new facility to take a much-needed break, with a focus on activities for teenagers and young adults.
As well as respite, Isaacs Respite Cottage will operate much needed, enjoyable and practical programs for adolescents with disability, including:
• All day activity clubs;
• After school clubs; and
• School holiday clubs.
Carers ACT now has respite cottages in both North and South Canberra.
