Respite and Recreation

The Junction Works’ Respite and Recreation Supports include centre-based and group activities for children, young people and adults with a disability to enable families and unpaid carers to take a break from their caring roles.


If you have an NDIS package, flexible respite falls within your Community Access and Recreation allocation.

Kids and Youth Connect

The Junction Works provides support, therapy and skill development services for children and young people with a disability. We call this Kids and Youth Connect.

Kids and Youth Connect programs include after school care from the Heckenberg Support Centre, holiday programs from Austral and Heckenberg and a range of weekend programs to suit the interests and support needs of children and young people in our care. This service operates from a range of sites across South West Sydney.
