Recreational Respite March Activities

Recreational Respite promotes inclusion, encourages community participation and nurtures social health and connectivity for children, youth and adults, across Canada.


One to One Respite Support  (Ages 5 - 100+)

Recreational Respite professionals work one-to-one with children, youth, adults and older adults who have a disability, mental health, or face social isolation. Those we support may face barriers to participation and connectivity which effect opportunities for participation. Targeted goals are for positive mental health, emotional wellness, social health and connectivity.
