MRS Program Cost

MRS Program Cost

The cost of all programs is $10.00 – $13.00 per event. However, in certain circumstances the cost may be negotiated.

Respite Workers

The Respite Workers are recruited to meet the needs of the individual participants and their families. For example, the majority of our carers are bi-lingual/bi-cultural and sensitivity and responsiveness to the individual cultural and linguistic needs of our clients is actively promoted within the organisation. Training/professional development is also provided to all Respite Workers on a regular basis.
