It can be complex to explain how referrals are made to Pact so please get in touch if you want to find out how to access our services. We’ll bend over backwards to help you. Even if you are not eligible for government-funded Pact support, we have other options, including paying for Pact services privately (see individually-funded services).
People with mental health issues and/or disability who live independently in the community sometimes need time out. Planned and crisis respite care is provided in a home-like setting, providing a safe place to de-stress. Where there is a crisis situation, respite can be provided at short notice. We also provide respite for people who are eligible for carer support.
