Specialist OSHC

In 2013, YMCA of Brisbane opened its first Specialist Outside School Hours Care Service at Aspley Special School which provides services to young people with a disability. In the same year, in partnership with Aspley Special School, the program won an NAB School’s First Award.

The lack of reliable After School or Holiday Care support is preventing many parents from fully participating in the workforce or forcing them to take less skilled positions so that they can work during school hours only. Not only does this impact on families incomes, it impacts on the general well-being of the parents, child, and family through measures of social isolation, high costs, relationship strain or break down and negative social attitudes.

YMCA’s Specialist OSHC service is therefore designed to provide a unique opportunity to benefit both young people with a disability and their carers.
