Our New Community Access Program

by | Sep 1, 2021

Our new program was created to support individuals with disabilities on the NSW Central Coast to access Community, Social and Recreational activities.

 

Founded in 1987 Lasercraft has been providing supported employment to individuals with a disability on the NSW central coast. Over 100 individuals with a disability have been supported with employment, a social outlet, and the ability to earn their own money.

This planted a seed in our minds, and we realised many of our supported employees would benefit from a program that allowed them to build on their social skills and access the broader community.
Lasercraft’s Community Access Program will ensure participants with disabilities have access to social activities and individual growth.

 


 

The activities in the program are designed to:

  • Build confidence, skills, and increase self-esteem.
  • Promote teamwork, creativity, and general wellbeing.

Below are some examples of the types of activities participants can enjoy;

  • Gardening
  • Arts and Craft
  • Sewing
  • Board Games
  • Photography
  • Cooking
  • Swimming
