Time Out logo
Time Out is a group support project for siblings of children with additional needs. At Time Out these brothers and sisters can find time for themselves, take part in fun activities, and express themselves freely.

Supported by COVEY staff and volunteers, the young people can connect with others in similar situations, share their experiences and take advantage of the opportunities available in their communities.

Volunteers at the group help to engage the young people providing support and guidance. To make it as easy as possible for the families involved volunteers and staff also help provide the transport to and from the groups.

If you would like to volunteer at Time Out you can find more about what's involved on our volunteering roles page.
