Respite and support for parents of children with cancer

Always there for you and ready to listen and support

Trained volunteer companions provide free of charge respite for parents needing a quiet time to relax or catch up on things.

Respite care is allocated in blocks or three to five hours, days or evenings. If more intensive support is required, volunteers can be available to remain overnight.

Contact Palliacco to arrange for
accompaniment service.

These services are available thanks to The Lighthouse, Children and Families.
