Caloundra Link supports families who care for another family member with a disability. The service offers support and recreation to a limited number of families andoffers a very flexible range of respite services by providing an annual allocation of funds to each of the families who are accepted into the program. This allocation is based on relative need and can be used to access:

  • Centre based respite at either Pandanus Guest House, our respite house at Currimundi or any other Disability Services approved service
  • In home respite in either the support staff member’s home or the family’s home
  • Out of home respite including recreation options that foster community inclusion, social interaction and the building of social networks

Families can "buy into" other activities the Scheme offers using their allocation from Caloundra Link.

A range of other respite options can be considered as long as they fall within funding guidelines.

Allocations made to families may vary year to year according to individual need and no guarantee can be made about the ongoing support or the level of support this service is able to offer.

Families must live in Caloundra City, Mooloolaba, Buderim, areas south of Palmwoods' main street, Maroochydore, Pacific Paradise, Mudjimba or Coolum and must be caring for another family member in their home who has a disability and who is aged up to 65 years.

There is currently a waiting list for this program. In order to access it, families must first register with Disability Services and indicate that they would like this service.

To register with Disability Services please contact the Intake Officer on 5352 7200. If you'd like assistance to register with Disability Services or more information about what you need to do to access funded services ring us on 5441 6600 and we can assist. Staff are available to help you fill in registration forms and can provide other assistance.
