Sanctuary Respite Centre


For when you need a break

One Door’s Sanctuary Respite Centre at North Head, Manly is a specialised retreat for carers of people living with mental illness.

Sanctuary Respite Centre gives you a break from your day-to-day responsibilities.

Sanctuary Respite Centre is a relaxing and peaceful environment away from daily worries. You and your family are accommodated in comfortable, private cottages with access to bush walks, beaches and relaxation therapy.

You can curl up with a book in the sunshine, enjoy a meal at a local café or have a family barbecue.

Our Sanctuary team understand what you need. They offer one-on-one support and can help you find educational, recreational and relaxing activities during your stay.

Ask our highly-trained staff about our unique offerings:
