Recreational Respite supports children, youth and adults with disability or mental health and their families, who face barriers to participation in their community. Our skills include being able to identify ways to remove the barriers that exist through various approaches in 1:1 or group settings. We strive for positive change and to reach desired outcomes through person centred recreation always including the needs, abilities, strengths and interests of an individual. This ensures that targeted goals for mental health, emotional health and physical wellness are achieved.

Recreational Respite’s supports and services are recognized by public/ministry and private foundations for funding or reimbursement for families who qualify.
