What we can do for you and your child
Our social support program provides your child or teen with opportunities for friendship and social interaction in a supportive environment. Excursions, creative art, craft, shopping, outdoor activities and more are provided and are designed to engage your child, strengthen their independence and confidence.
Transition (and life) skills
One of the exciting times in our life is the transition from being a teenager to an adult. We offer specialised services for this important stage in your teen’s life. We meet with you to discuss your teenager’s goals and we develop an individual plan accordingly.
Your teen can learn skills in a range of areas such as managing finances and budgeting, cooking, and conducting relationships. With a little coaching, knowledge and hands-on experience, it can make many facets of life a lot easier, more fulfilling and can help your teen to become more independent.
At St Carthage’s Community Care we know that carers need care too.
We offer overnight respite for children at our beautiful purpose built Jubilee House. We also offer in home respite and many other options to suit your needs.
We ensure every young person’s needs are catered for while they are with us including any special requirements in regard to diet, health, education, and favourite activities.
