Unlike many mainstream respite and social support services, Culturally and Linguistic Diverse (CALD) programs aims to cater for the needs of people from Indigenous and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds by providing respite that is suitable to the specific cultural and linguistic needs of our participants and their primary carers/families.
