If practice makes perfect Steve has become quite the fisherman!  He knows where all the best local spots are and likes to catch up with his Dad, Russell to share the experience.  Increasing his local knowledge, getting out and about and exploring his personal interests has built Steve’s confidence and sense of well-being.

Ways you can choose to develop your skills are:

Accessing My Community

Visiting community places, events and participating in community activities increases your confidence and enjoyment in life and can encourage you to try new things to develops skills and opportunities.

I like to catch the train to Sydney to visit my sisters Kyrsten and Nikki. I felt proud and excited to do this by myself – Duschka

My Day Program

DSS provide a person-centered, day support program that is individualised and flexible to meet the needs of the participants. From our 83 Wingham Road premises, we currently offer a cooking program which focuses on skill development in preparing food in a healthy way, different styles of cooking, knife handling and kitchen hygiene. A Money Management program is also being delivered.

Programs are centre-based and will be developed steadily and responsively based on community needs, to ensure Dundaloo is providing programs that are not readily available with other providers locally. We plan to fill any ‘gaps’ for participants.

My Learning

This may include:

  • Life skills
  • Communication skills
  • Budgeting and money skills

“I have $5 I use for cooking.  I get my money from the bank and put in money bags so I can do what I want.  I save it up or go shopping on Fridays and buy what I need.” Rhonda

Rhonda is learning to manage her own money with a money management program.  This enables Rhonda to learn to budget, to plan and it teaches her to prioritise her needs.  Money management has empowered Rhonda’s independence and increases her capacity for decision making and choice.

Finding and Keeping a Job

We can support you to find volunteer work or employment that is meaningful to you. Having a job gives you a sense of purpose and an opportunity participate in your community economically and socially. It is an opportunity to develop new skills and achieve goals.
