Kid’s Activities

These programs provide respite to Carers of younger children generally aged 3-10yrs. Riverlink accesses four sites in the Cumberland-Prospect area: Lidcombe, Blacktown and Baulkham Hills during term time, and Lidcombe, Marayong, Doonside Kindy and Baulkham Hills during the holidays. Special Activities are also periodically planned as outings to age appropriate venues.

Programs usually operate on Saturday for approximately 5 hours and during the school holidays in response to Carer need.

Staffing for this program is in accordance to the support needs of the care recipients, with some capacity to be flexible in meeting the needs of younger children with a disability who have higher support needs.
