Wangarang provides life skills & recreational programs which aim to develop and maintain participants’ ability to take part in community life and meaningful activities, enhance participants’ independence, provide participants with opportunities for ongoing learning and development as well as developing and sustaining social interactions.
Person centred planning approaches are used when individually designing programs for participants. Wangarang staff get to know the participants and establish the individual’s interests, goals and aspirations. Programs are designed to give the participant and their parents/carers choice in a range of age appropriate activities.
Activities that support the development and maintenance of independent living skills, promote health and fitness and provide community access are included in our individualised approach to program planning.
Current activities include:
- Disability Sport of the Month
- drum circle
- money skills
- visits to Orange City Library
- volunteering with Meals on Wheels
In addition, our participants have access to activities associated with establishing and maintaining a garden and can enjoy the satisfaction and therapeutic benefits of planting, growing, harvesting and cooking their own produce.
Wangarang staff are always on the lookout for new fun and interesting sessions to expand and enhance the range of activities on offer.
To be eligible to be a participant in Wangrang’s Life Skills & Recreational programs you will just need to have the appropriate funding in your NDIS plan.
