My Time Away








My Time away offers a variety of fun flexible respite and social activity options through the following programs:

Centre Based Respite

Mosaic centre based respite offers 4 options across 2 sites. Children’s aged 5-12yrs, Teenagers aged 13-17yrs, Adults aged 18 – 64 yrs and Short Term and Emergency respite.

This respite model aims to assist children, young people and adults to remain living within their home and local community by providing you with a centre-based short-term break. If you and your family are looking for a break on weekdays and/or weekends in a centre based environment this may be what you are looking for. Respite is Fun, Flexible and Family orientated.  

You and your family will be involved in the planning and preparation of your stay at respite. This will mean telling us all about you and your interests and how we can plan your stay to be:

Fun, Flexible and Family orientated.  

We would like your stay to be relaxing and enjoyable and offer you the opportunity to participate in a range of activities including:

  • movie and theatre nights
  • cooking
  • fishing, football and cricket
  • concerts and shows
  • BBQ in the park
  • museums, zoo, markets and national parks
  • art projects
  • dining out

By choosing to stay with us for a few nights or a weekend you will have the opportunity to meet new friends, take part in fun activities, build your independence and skills.

Come and be part of the fun.

Eligibility to access the service is determined by The Gateway Services or NDIS which provides a point of entry to our service.

Here is a message that we received from a friend of a family member that accesses respite.

“I received a message from my friend tonight, her daughter Litiani is now accessing respite.

She says; Just letting you know I am super impressed with the staff at STAR and Litiani loves what she calls respike!!!

No other service comes close at this point of our journey.

Well done to you and your team Darryleen, Gaye has had a huge struggle accessing the most appropriate service for Litiani and it appears we have met the brief.

Love your work!!!”
