Wood Rising Day Program

Our Day programme is run by Melissa at Woodrising Community Centre. This a programme based on learning life skills. Melissa comes from a diverse background, working with a range of clients. Melissa loves to focus on her client’s abilities and has a passion for helping her clients find and keep employment within our community.

Some of the common programmes we run are cooking, gardening, sustainability, and community engagement. We also volunteer at Landcare and School Canteen. This aims to teach our participants priceless life skills such as, Food Safety and handling, working in groups effectively, mindfulness around wastage and sustainability and appropriate behaviour while working with a range of individuals.

This is integrated into the programme run by Aspire Disability Group. The group learns to run by routine and are encouraged to learn independence and initiative, in a fun and effective manner.
