Child & Youth Facility-Based Respite – Cosy Cottage

CBCT delivers respite services for eligible children and young people who are funded by Disability Support Services (DSS) or Oranga Tamariki. This facility has the capacity to accommodate up to four people and is staffed 24 hours a day. This service also has a vehicle and can take people to their school or usual day time activity if needed.

Sometimes family members need a break from each other and CBCT provides an environment for this to happen.
