Programs for Non-Registered Families

There are many programs that children, teenagers and young adults with disability, as well as members of their families, can access here at Interchange Outer East without being fully registered. Being fully registered means that you have gone through a comprehensive intake process with one of our intake coordinators, including a home visit and home safety check.

To access 1:1 or small group support with a support worker, or our school holiday program, adult recreation and children’s recreation programs, you must be fully registered.

However, if you are not fully registered, there are still lots of programs and services available to you!

As well as our allied health services and family support programs, the following programs are open to children and young adults with disability who are not fully registered at Interchange Outer East.
