Over our years of experience within the disability and community sectors we have come to recognize and appreciate the level of complexity faced by people with a disability when tackling everyday tasks and activities. We can provide training and development across a range of life skills, including:
- Personal hygiene: such as showering, toileting and personal care
- Nutrition: such as shopping for groceries and planning for and preparing a healthy meal
- Maintaining cleanliness in your home: such as housework, laundering of clothes and addressing maintenance issues or repairs
- Communicating with service providers and support networks
- Transport and travel: such as planning your journey, accessing public transport and trouble‐shooting issues.
Individual life and personal skills development

Our staff can work with you to develop your skills and independence to manage your finances, including managing a bank account and creating a budget.By working to improve your numeracy and literacy, we can also improve your skills for communication and independent living.
Training for parents and carers
We understand that being a parent or career is a full‐time, high-pressure job, placing significant demands on an individual’s time, energy and resources. We can work with parents and carers to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding required to manage both their day‐to‐day realities and longer-term situations.In partnership with parents and carers, we can provide information and guidance about the management of challenging behaviours, personal care and mealtime support.We can also work with parents to manage episodic issues including transitions into, between and out of educational settings and transition out of the family home into independent or group‐based living environments.
For any enquiries, please contact one of our friendly staff or send a referral form with all information.
