The cost of activities is kept to a minimum as much as possible to enable everyone to participate. Each month our calendar will be available for you to choose what you would like to do.

Your day could start from our office in Penrith or at a designated venue. We build into our support everyday independent living skills to help you meet your goals and experience something new and different. Our support workers will work alongside you and adapt to your support needs.
