Supporting Makayla to find her own path
Supporting eight-year-old Makayla to take her first steps of independence is an achievement MacKillop Family Services’ Disability Team is very proud of. Working closely with Makayla’s family, the team supported Makayla to attend the School Holiday Program which provides a range of community-based activities for children and young people with disabilities.
