"STRONGER TOGETHER" is a weekly column where Tanya explores key issues. This week Tanya focuses on making changes in your life and the NDIS Support Services at IMPACT.
By Tanya O'Shea, IMPACT Community Services' Managing Director
Making small decisions can lead to some of the biggest changes to your life, health, creativity, and overall wellbeing.
Whether it be to try something new or meet people, making small decisions for yourself is important.
It’s empowering and can provide you with a sense of purpose; a sense of joy; a sense of self.
And with the right amount of support, opportunity, and motivation, it can be transformative.
It’s part of the reason why IMPACT Community Services is committed to improving lives.
Whether it’s through building capacity and/or capability for individual personal or professional needs - IMPACT has numerous programs which support and enable vulnerable people to make changes and improve their life and community connection.
Within our NDIS Services these include the Focus on Fitness program and The Shed.
Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme, families and carers will have access to the help they need to support people with disability so they can participate in a life filled with community and employment opportunities.
The NDIS provides Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary support they need to enjoy life.
IMPACT has centre-based activities, community-based activities, individual support, and employment opportunities.
The Focus on Fitness program focuses on friendship and fitness by facilitating sporting activities and exercise.
There are currently two positions available in the program for anyone looking to participate.
IMPACT also has a plethora of opportunity for friendship, creativity and upskilling in The Shed.
Learning how to use power tools and build material objects along with confidence and new skillsets are among the opportunities supported in The Shed.
If you would like to participate in the woodworking program in The Shed, now’s your chance. There are currently two positions available.
Our support services promote choice and control and are tailored to suit one’s specific needs.
We aim to help you engage with your community and educational activities, to build independence and overall confidence. For more information about the support services click here or phone 4153 4233.
