R&R Disability Services (formerly Respite and Recreation Inc) is a community based not for profit organisation located in Coffs Harbour, NSW.
We provide community based respite and recreation support and care for families and carers and have a range of individualised support programs for individuals with disabilities. We specialise in respite care, support and recreational programs for individuals with supported living funds and self managed funds from the NSW Government's Family and Community Services Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care. R&R Disability Services is an approved provider of Life Choices, Active Ageing and Supported Living Funds Programs.




Volunteers are a vital part of our organisation, as what we want to achieve cannot be done without the help and support of generous people like you. Having people donate their time and skills to support our service and service users allows us to provide additional support to those who most need it.
