Independent living with CPL
We want people to achieve their goals of greater independence, which is why we run a range of independent living (or life skills) programs. If you are considering moving to a home of your own, or want to get around more independently without support, we can help you develop the skills you need.
Whether you are a self-confessed foodie or want to learn your way around the kitchen, CPL's Cooking Programs are for everyone. Running across Queensland and Northern New South Wales, participants will learn new skills, build confidence, make new friends (and, of course, taste your creations!). You can read more about the program below.
