The host program matches your child who has a disability (up to age 18) with a volunteer host who welcomes your child into their home and lifestyle, providing them with an opportunity to make new friendships, develop new skills and enjoy new experiences. In turn, this gives you the opportunity to catch up on things you may not otherwise get a chance to do. Why not spend more quality time with other family members and friends, make a dent in your to-do list or just put your feet up and have a rest!
Matching your child with the right host volunteer is an inclusive process. It involves regular catch ups and conversations to ensure we have as much information and understanding about your child and family as we can. This ensures that the match is based on a mutual sharing of interests, values and availability.
