Become a host family

Make a difference by becoming a host family

Host families play a special role in the lives of children with disability and ensure they are given a safe, stable and nurturing environment.

Senses Australia is currently in search of full-time host families or respite host families.  If you are a reliable, empathetic and compassionate person who would like to make a long term commitment to nurture a child’s development and growth, we would love to hear from you.

It is desirable you have some knowledge of, or experience in working with people with disability and/or complex needs, however this is not essential.

To become a host family, you will undertake a comprehensive assessment.  We will guide you through the requirements and conditions related to becoming a host family and will provide intensive support, initial and ongoing training and financial reimbursement to assist you to enrich the child’s quality of life.
