Assistance with Social and Community Participation Community Access

Our social and community services are all about helping you to participate in the hobbies
and activities that you are passionate about, and access the services you want to access.

We are strong advocates that people with a disability have the right to be active members of society, and provide in-home opportunities for participation as well as facilitate connecting you with people and groups in the community who share common interests.

Opportunities for social and community participation were the very first thing Ability Assist offered when we began, and since then we have empowered thousands of individuals with a disability to live fuller, happier lives.

Group activities in a centre - Day Program

Our day program, held at our centre in Tullamarine, provides a fun and welcoming environment for social and community activities with other Ability Assist clients, 5 days a week.

Our support staff are experienced in a wide range of things to do like cooking, arts and crafts and technology, and can plan a schedule that suits you, full of activities you’d like to try that align with your goals. Some activities are designed to build your skills and develop independence, and others are for pure enjoyment!

You can come on a casual basis, join us one or two days a week, or all five. It’s up to you.

Activities are done in small groups with the guidance and support of 1 or 2 staff or additional staffing, depending on support needs.

Community Access

We can help you to take part in activities, events and educational courses within your community. Whether it’s taking art or singing classes, going to the beach, visiting a cafe for lunch, or seeing a movie or concert, we can work with you and your carers to facilitate this, either on a one-off or continual basis.
