YOUNG ADULTS – Life after school ….

We ensure the right mix of supports is in place to assist with the journey upon leaving school. 

We work with school leavers and their families to assist with the transition from school to the “adult” world. We understand this can be a time of big change for many people. Through various avenues of opportunity young people with disability are assisted to develop the skills they need to increase their independence and participate as valued and active members of the community when they leave school.

FAMILIES / CARERS – Peer to Peer support . . .

Sometimes you may just need to talk with someone who has a shared experience with caring for someone who has a disability. Whether it is one and one or in a group we can help you connect to someone who can share knowledge, experiences and offer practical support.

Community Kitchen

Community KitchenThe Community Kitchen concept is an Australia wide group aimed at developing a sense of community around food. It gives people the opportunity to develop new friendships, whilst further developing skills in cooking affordable meals. Participants come from many different walks of life and every member has strengths and skills which can be passed on to other members of the group.

Upon trying to source a community kitchen for some of the people who we support we found there wasn’t one Geraldton. With the help of the Lighthouse Church who provide the venue we registered our own Community Kitchen.

The kitchen has been running for two years and is at full capacity of attendance each week. The Community Kitchen is facilitated by Kylie, who is one of the people we support; she is assisted by Midwest Community Living Association Support Workers
