Community Connect is focused on remaining physically and mentally active, participating in meaningful activities and keeping people connected. We understand this essential to wellbeing.

From gardening, to working with tools at the Men’s Shed or attending the Wellness Centre for art or for exercise classes our aim is to keep you connected within the community.

Committed to keeping participants connected in our community is our Community Connect (NDIS Connect). Our participants can also access our Community Gardens, Men’s Shed and Wellness Centre to achieve their goals.

Other services like the No Interest Loans Scheme are available through Community Connect so you are supported when you need it the most.
