About Your New NDIS Day Program
We offer a varied program on a weekly basis. At our fully-equipped centre, we offer skills training in…
household skills and self-care including cooking, food hygiene, travel training, cleaning and laundry as well as practical literacy, maths for money management and IT skills. We also offer art therapy classes.
Let’s get out and about!
We also regularly organise walks in the local environment and to destinations on Bribie Island and the Sunshine Coast, building capacity among participants for self-reliance as well as improving their confidence with everyday activities.
Did Someone Say Fun?
We’re glad you asked…
The program is also designed to help people develop interests and build friendships and so it periodically organises fun trips such as swimming lessons, beach trips, musical theatre, movie nights, bowling, karaoke, overnight camps in recreational cabins and visits to the Sunshine Coast.
Oh wait, there’s more…The Cool Clubs Start here!
Finally, there are regular special interest groups including Girls Club Fridays, Blokes Group and Fishing Club to help people of all ages develop and connect with each other.
