Children's Services

With an increasing demand for services for Children and Young People with disability aged between 7 and 18 years, Westhaven has created a range of services designed to meet each child’s individual disability support needs, cultural background, and personal preferences.

Westhaven’s Children’s Services team provides a safe and caring trained staff who deliver these services in an environment to support the individual disability needs of each child and young person.

Westhaven provides short term accommodation and Voluntary Out of Home Care in the form of respite for children and young people. VOOHC/ STA assists with the care of children and young people with a disability outside the family home to ensure their support needs are continually met.

Individual and Group Community Access

Our programs give children and young people with disability the opportunity to be involved in the community and enjoy a range of meaningful, social, recreational and leisure activities.
