Challenge

Teenagers and children with special needs also need the social interaction to develop themselves at the same time as giving their carers some rest and respite from the constant care needed.

Solution

While the youngsters are able to experience a social and dynamic community their carers are able to rest and also give others in their families much needed attention.

Long-Term Impact

Families will be strengthened by being able to experience social interaction and independence while carers gain rest and respite.
