With a wide range of group programs on offer you can explore a variety of activities within a small group program. Our group ratio is 1 staff supporting 3 participants, so while in a group setting, support continues to be focused on individual needs and personal goals.

Weekly plans are developed by our Group Facilitators in consultation with participants.
