WHY PIRATES? Pirates… are a community of their own and have been made popular through screen and television depicting a comradery and sense of fun and adventure. At Pirates that’s exactly what we aim for as well. Young people need friends and adventure to make life great…young people with disabilities deserve nothing less than this. Welcome to Pirates!

Meet new friends!

Pirates Rest  – Short Term Supported Accommodation & Respite provides weekend and mid week respite for young people with disabilities.  We plan great activities which are included as part of our service.

We can provide Medium Support Accommodation as well…if you are between homes. Our community residence is a cosy spot in a central location.
