Assistance for Children and Teenagers with Disabilities

Glenray is an approved Voluntary Out-of-Home (VOOHC) Care Provider registered by the Office of the Children’s Guardian to provide Out-of-Home Care.

Voluntary out-of-home care (VOOHC) is overnight care provided by Glenray to a child or young person away from their usual home and with the consent of their family.

If support is needed to assist with care for children and young people with disability outside the family home, Glenray can assist. Voluntary out of home care provides respite for children and young people who are living with their family members or carers.

    • overnight or short term accommodation in a group home, respite, hotel or Air BnB environment
    • overnight stay with another family in a ‘host family’ arrangement
    • longer-term residential care

Care may be provided as a one-off emergency placement or may be used on a regular or long-term basis.
