Empowering you to try new activities
Gaining independence to live life on your terms is a key outcome of developing everyday life skills. You’ll learn by doing, and feel empowered to try new things for yourself, whether the activity is big or small.
Be an engaged member of the community
Learning everyday life skills offers you a great opportunity to meet people and make new friends. You’ll be part of a supportive and encouraging community, which will boost your sense of wellbeing. And you’ll enjoy new experiences and fun social activities so you can get even more out of life.
Everyday life skills you might like to develop
Below are just some of the goals you might achieve during one of our programs. Activities vary each term so let us know what you are most interested in!
Build independence: Maybe you’d like to learn to cook or manage everyday household duties. Or perhaps you want to feel confident using technology like a computer or iPad, or travelling on public transport by yourself. When you build your life skills, you build your independence too.
Develop social skills: Meeting new people and developing friendships are important parts of creating an enjoyable and fulfilling life. As you practice your communication skills, your confidence will grow, enabling you to explore your community and make new social connections. Have fun attending social events at local parks, museums, cafes and restaurants. Or take part in bigger events like concerts, festivals or theatre.
Take care of your health & wellbeing: When you feel good, you can get the most out of life. Learning to plan and cook healthy meals, going to the gym or joining a sporting team are all ways to make sure you feel your best, while developing valuable skills along the way.
Enjoy your favourite activities: Whether it’s arts and craft, dancing and music, or filmmaking and photography, hobbies are a great way to learn new skills or develop skills you already have. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment as your skills grow, along with the pleasure of taking part in an activity you love.
