Life Choices Program
Services We Provide Include:
Individually tailored plans and programs
Plans and programs are designed to meet a person’s specific needs. The Northside Service Plan (NSP) is a fully
co-ordinated goal setting process and plan initiated by the individual service user and his/her Case Manager and
contributed to by relevant staff, parents and/or carers. These plans are reviewed regularly.
Community Access & Participation
Training and support of people with disabilities in the access and use of general community facilities, services and
activities in order to achieve and maintain inclusion in their local and wider community.
Development of Valued Role in the Community
Facilitation and support of people with disabilities in achieving a respected and valued status within the
community through volunteer work, membership of clubs, and liaison with other individuals and community groups in order to identify opportunities for people with disabilities to fulfil roles that are typical of other people of similar age and backgrounds.
Independent Living Skills
Training and support in every day life skills that include public transport travel, banking, money and
purchasing, cooking, personal hygiene, grooming, behaviour management, promoting personal health
and wellbeing, decision making and choice.
Social, Recreational, Leisure and Cultural
Participation and Interaction Skills
In addition to our training programs for independent living and community participation skills we organise
social nights and outings throughout the year as well as celebrations of community events. As part of our
out-of-hours “Pathfinders” program we are constantly considering new out-of-hours social, cultural and
recreational activities with view to facilitating a richer social life for our service users.
Training and support in skills such as conversing with others, verbal and non-verbal communication, literacy
Our training and programming staff are highly skilled in service provision to people with disabilities. We
practice flexible and creative approaches to learning while working collaboratively with families and carers.
