We provide a range of accommodation supports to people to encourage their independence and choices.

This program assists young people and adults living with a disability to identify personal goals, develop plans for the future and access their full potential. It includes a range of recreational and social activities, as well as support in developing living skills and integrating with their community.
Qualified Direct Support Professionals, working in conjunction with the individual’s Service Coordinator facilitate this program by providing support either individually or in groups within a number of settings:
- In the local community
- Within our purpose built centre
- In their own home
These activities assist people with disabilities to meaningfully engage with socially valued activities in their community, which in turn enables the person with a disability to participate in the normal life of their local community.
When people with disabilities are appropriately supported to engage in these activities, people experience a sense of belonging and have a sense of control over their lives. We believe a person’s self image is improved through their achievement of personal goals and as a result of their participation in social networks.
Flexible Respite is focused on assisting a person to live their life to the fullest, in a range of activities which the person enjoys and which will naturally result in them spending time away from carers.
