Respite Care

Short-term respite care provides a much-needed break for families while offering children a loving and caring environment. It is available for children, aged between 0-15 years, for 1-2 nights every 6 weeks. Temcare connects families-in-need with Christian carers.

Children can be placed with couples, singles or families, and wherever possible and appropriate, siblings will be kept together. Whilst not compulsory, a financial contribution of $15 from the family per night for each child would be appreciated.

All Temcare respite carers are comprehensively assessed and are required to obtain a current ‘Working with Children Check’ and to submit to a ‘National Criminal History Check’.
