Specialised Substitute Residential Care (SSRC)

SSRC For Every Need

Specialised Substitute Residential Care (SSRC) is a legally NSW (New South Wales) recognized arrangement that provides overnight respite care or behavior support for children outside their family home. When parents seek professional care and support for their child for three or more nights in seven days, they can turn to SSRC services.

At Crescent Community Care, our SSRC program ensures that children receive specialised care and assistance in a safe and nurturing environment. We adhere to the Child Safe Scheme and follow a strict code of practice to provide every child’s well-being in our care.
