Life Skills participants often work with community partners, businesses and social enterprises to support and engage in desired pathways including work, skill development and ongoing learning, recreation, and leisure options. Participants can identify learning and social needs and work towards achieving potential through these options. Participants are encouraged to develop life skills to live as independently as possible.
Participants can choose to assist with Meals on Wheels, visit nursing homes, join sporting and recreational activities, or focus on education, training or work experience. Independence is promoted through activities focusing on self-advocacy, positive relationships, money skills and healthy lifestyles. In addition to day time activities, after hours social outings are also offered.
