The Independent Pathways and Living Skills (I-Pals) Program
The Independent Pathways and Living Skills (I-Pals) Program is designed to bring people with a disability together to build skills, confidence and independence. Run in a fun and supportive environment, the program encourages participants to develop their goals for independence whilst making new friendships and connections within their local communities. All people with a disability over 18 are welcome. This free program is fully funded by the National Disability Insurance Agency but people without an NDIS plan are also eligible to participate at no cost.
The program will run at the Daylesford Neighborhood Centre, Camp St Daylesford , commencing on Friday March 12th and continuing until the end of June 2021. The program will run from 10 am to 3 pm each Friday. Participation is free and all resources are supplied. Participants are only required to bring their own lunch. The group size is limited to ten participants. By participating in this free program, participants will:
- be encouraged and supported to speak up for themselves
- be given opportunities to grow their confidence and improve their self-esteem
- be provided with access to information and resources to help with decision making and problem solving
- be able to develop greater independence and the ability to make new connections in their local communities.
