Currently our books are closed for Individual Support services, however Gateways understands that getting a break from your caring routine is important for you and your family and we offer a range of programs which can provide support.
Please visit our Recreation & Activities pages to view our range of group based recreational programs for children and adults, which also provide an opportunity for family and carers to have respite from their caring role.
Gateways also offers two programs Boost 4 Kids and Getaway House, where children with a disability and/or complex health need can stay overnight in Geelong or Warrnambool. The Interchange Host Buddy Program provides individual support by matching a child with a disability with a volunteer.
