Our history

Camp Breakaway established in 1982 is a registered non-profit charitable organisation, a registered service provider for the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) and a member of NDS (National Disability Services) that specialises in providing respite care for people with disabilities and their carers. We also provide emergency respite care and hire our site and facilities to other respite care providers to raise additional funds for our camps

What's Happeing

Our Impact

At Breakaway we aim to be the Heart and Soul of everything we do, but what does that mean –

Just being there for a person with a disability is a great way to make an impact, letting  them know you’re there if they need anything and make sure you’re around to show them you care, even the smallest things can make a huge difference.

Disability does not define our clients it is just a part of their lives. The most important thing for making a difference in their life is to be understanding of what they may need differently – but more importantly, to treat them as though they were anyone else!

"We were most impressed with your organisation and with the voluntary helpers who helped make this a real break. To give such a lasting memory of friendship and excitement to people who are confined by their disability and loneliness is worth more than words can express – just to say thank you seems inadequate, but it is meant with great sincerity."
