Health and Wellness

Supporting the needs and wellbeing of our community are at the forefront of everything we do. We empower our community and encourage healthy connections and friendship, with an emphasis on healthy wellbeing as well as encouraging and supporting healthy lifestyle through fitness and dance.


Our Homebase Groups are an opportunity for clients to meet and connect with their Disability Support Coordinator every Monday morning.

This time is set aside to support and empower clients, encouraging each other to be more assertive and confident. We also focus on promoting healthy living and looking after our well-being during this time. It is also a wonderful opportunity for the group to discuss their achievements, feelings, goals, and ambitions.

The first Monday of the month is set aside for Client Meetings, where clients meet to discuss programmes, events and concerns under the guidance of their elected Client Council.
