Communication regarding Sanctuary Respite Service

You may have heard that One Door Mental Health (One Door) is going through a time of change. We want you to know that we continue working to create a world a world where people living with mental illness are valued and treated as equals. 

There have been significant changes in the mental health sector since 2016. Like most other service providers, we’ve been thinking carefully about how to adapt to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and the Commonwealth government’s radical reduction in their funding, with no funding at all by 30 June 2019. 

One Door went through a full consultation with our staff to explore the best way forward. We gave unique consideration to each area of operation. 

One Door regrets that we are no longer able to provide respite services at Sanctuary. This decision was not made lightly but following recent discussions with funding agencies, we are no longer able to continue this service.

One Door has a long history of working with all of you: our partners, colleagues, consumers, carers, and community members. One Door staff thank you for your past and ongoing collaboration, and look forward to working with you in our new capacity in the future.
