Access to respite care

At Very Special Kids Hospice we aim to provide families with fair and equitable access to planned respite. Currently the amount of respite allocation for each child is as follows:

  • families may have up to three weeks of respite per financial year, usually taken in blocks of no longer than two weeks
  • bookings may be made up to six months in advance via bookings@vsk.org.au
  • alternate school holidays may be requested and blocks of no longer than one week can be taken (exceptional circumstances will be taken into consideration). To be fair, please try to avoid planning for stays in the same school holiday period each year.
  • exceptional circumstances will be considered
