Making Friends, Social Groups and Outings 

The Disability Trust offers a range of great programs and supports to promote friendships and connections with peers the same age with similar interests.

Participants can choose between a range of community and centre based peer support activities. 

The focus is on fun, friendships and variety. 

Groups include: 

Teen Time 

Teen Time provides After School and Vacation programs for participants still at school 

Leisure Link 

Leisure Link provides support for people with disabilities of all ages to create a healthy and balanced lifestyle involving weekend camps and regular weekly sporting or recreational activities. We aim to foster the interests and individual goals of a participant which will then contribute to their
sense of “self”. 

Getaway Saturday 

 Getaway Saturday is a fun, activity and recreational program for participants over the age of 12. 

Finally its Friday Social Club 

On the first Friday of each month we meet at different location for a fun night out which gives participants an opportunity to meet and make new friends in a supportive environment. 

Mischief Makers Drama Program 

This is a program designed to help children explore their creative side. It is a great opportunity for those participants of a young age who have an interest in performing on stage and it’s a great pathway to our other Drama Groups.
