Community Access

Our Voice Our Choice Community Access Program expands opportunities for people living with intellectual and/or physical disability and mental health concerns.

We believe the simple truth that people are experts in their own lives. Our focus is on each person’s goals, and a program is mapped out to support them achieving those goals.

Being connected to your community and socially participating contributes to our sense of wellbeing, purpose and quality if life. Our Voice Our Choice offers a range of community access options to increase social skills, assist with independent skill building such as cooking, learning how to use public transport, budgeting and working towards achieving your NDIS goals

If  you are keen to try a new activity, make news friends or you simply just want to get out more, we have many options available for you. You can choose to do more of the things you already love doing or you can choose to get out of your comfort zone and ty something new!
