Recreational Respite promotes inclusion, encourages community participation and nurtures social health and connectivity for children, youth and adults, across Canada.
Ages 5 - 100+
One to One Respite Support
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.
Young Adults (Ages 16+)
Virtual Group Programs
Virtual group programs for young adults aim to provide independent skill mastery that cultivate and promote self-care, healthy relationships, leadership skills, and explore various topics that address transition and change. Each inclusive program creates opportunities to promote healthy avenues to independence and social health. We invite young adults to join us for outcome-based small group programs which cultivate friendships, nurture interests and develop skills for success.
This August, try our Online Road Trips, Dungeons & Dragons Capsule Programs, Escape Room, and develop Skills for Success! Registration is required.
All programs are run via Zoom and scheduled in Eastern Time.
