The Saturday activities program gives children and young people with a disability the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy a day out. It can be a great way to introduce children who are not yet ready to spend the weekend away from home to social activities.

Saturday activities programs also provide children and young people with a disability the opportunity to learn and have fun in a supportive environment. We offer a wide range of group-based social and recreational activities to cater to a participant’s individual needs which can be community or centre based. Our activities also work to support young people to learn new skills and develop independence.
