Getting out into the community

If your teen wants to go music event, we can help make it happen. If your teen wants to have a beach day out or hit the markets, we're there to support. Whatever the adventure, our support workers can assist but the match is essential. We invest time to understand your teen's interests, likes and dislikes - and then connect them with someone they truly click with.

Creative, recreational and life skills programs

We have programs especially for teenagers to meet and hang out with other teens, socialise, learn new skills, explore interests and try new things. They're brilliant for meeting new people and exploring ways to step out of comfort zones.
