Children’s Autism Respite Funding at SCS

Children’s Autism respite funding is allocated to SCS by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services to support flexible and responsive respite services to autistic children, youth, and their families.

Through the lens of continuous improvement, SCS will be introducing a more efficient and effective process to directly support goal and service planning for the children, youth, and families receiving case management services.

Applications will no longer be required. Access to this limited funding will be reviewed with the assigned case manager through the goal and planning process.

As a waitlist management strategy, autistic individuals who have been deemed eligible for SCS case management services and are on the waitlist for services, will automatically be entered into a funding lottery. No application required.

Funding is not available for children and youth who are not receiving case management services or on the waitlist for services.

For more information, please refer to the brochure here.
