Residential Out of Home Care

Residential out of home care (ROOHC) is aimed at children and young people who are under the care of the minister. ROOHC involves placing the child and/or young
person with disability and/or their siblings in a home environment that supports the child and/or young person.
Westhaven's trained staff support the child and/or young person within their home 24/7, 365 days of the year.
Children and young people living in residential out of home care may have experienced separation from families, placement breakdowns, trauma or loss.
NPSS - Westhaven provide Non Placement Support Services for children and young people through:

  • Family Access
  • Crisis Placement
  • Transport
  • Mentoring
With a provisional accreditation with the Office of the Children's Guardian, Westhaven staff are able to provide residential 
out of home care within the local community for all children with disability aged between 2 and 18 years. For children 
and young people who have complex disability support needs, we will work with stakeholders to ensure the right 
supports from their NDIS plan are accessed.

If you would like more information, or would like to meet with us to discuss what we offer in relation to residential out of home care: please contact Westhaven directly to arrange a meeting.
