Eastern Respite & Recreation has been supporting people with a disability and their families for almost 30 years. Eastern Respite is a dynamic and innovative not-for-profit organisation that provides respite, day programs and recreational services to people who have a disability living throughout Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Eastern Respite was formed in 1985 by a small group of dynamic parents seeking a better quality of life for their children. Four programs were initially established to provide children with disabilities opportunities to develop their skills while also giving families a break from their caring role. Today Eastern Respite provides services to over 300 people with a disability. Our services aim to support people with a disability to live fulfilling lives with independence and dignity.
