Enhancing Vacation Care Program

  1. About this service

    The Enhancing Vacation Care Program Helps children and teens aged between 6 - 18 years who have a mild to moderate disability and want to join mainstream holiday activities with minimal support. They need to live in the Shire of Cardinia. There is no cost for the extra support. Children's services are run by OSHClub at Pakenham Springs and Beaconsfield Primary schools. Youth Services are run by the Cardinia Shire and are based at My Place.
