Wood Rising Day Program

Our Day programme is run by Melissa at the Woodrising Community Centre and is; lifestyle skilled base. Mellissa comes from a background in helping disabled young adults find and keep jobs. 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.

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