Teen Time provides After School and Vacation programs for participants still at school
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 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.
Junior 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.
Adult Drama Groups
We currently have a number of drama groups in South Eastern Sydney and the Illawarra. These groups give an opportunity for participants to perform on stage.
This group meets on the third Sunday of each month in various locations across the Illawarra and is a great opportunity to meet new friends in a fun and safe environment.
‘Ragers’ is a group based community access option for those who are over 18 years of age. This program aims to allow our participants to increase their social and community participation, improve skill development and confidence in a group. It is one of our more popular programs with activities such as live football matches, karaoke, stage performances, bowling and dinners.
