JewishCare’s Disability Programs
Providing purpose, empowerment and social connection
JewishCare’s disability team are proud to offer a wide range of services to individuals with a disability, their families and the community. We strive to empower participants to achieve their goals, optimise funding opportunities and reduce stigma to ensure every person enjoys their best life.
We are a team that welcomes you to our community, will listen to your needs and provide multiple solutions to enable you to make informed decisions. We also love to have FUN!
We do this through our small group activities that teach new skills, promotes independence and help participants connect with others who have similar interests.
Our Kitchen Hand and JDay programs provide regularly changing activities that are informed by participants’ interests. From dancing to computer skills and excursions, we provide rewarding days for attendees to enjoy.
Programs run 9am-3pm, Monday to Thursday.
For the love of food
Our Kitchen Hand (OKH) is an innovative approach to training, skill-building, personal development and community participation for people with disabilities including those with a psychosocial (mental health) disability.
Attendees will enjoy a purpose-built kitchen and develop an array of skills associated with food preparation, including:
• Green thumbs gardening.
• Grocery shopping.
• Hospitality employability skill-building.
• Health eating choices.
• Market stalls management.
• Safe food preparation.
A delicious program that is well loved!
For the curious explorers
JDay is an exciting day program for attendees to learn, explore, move and see new things.
Program participants can choose to join us for their favourite daily activities or enjoy the weekly programs. Activities include:
• Personal styling.
• Yoga and Pilates.
Bring your personalities and sense of fun to these social programs!
Programs attract NDIS funding (under Core Support – increased social and community participation), with a $15 daily contribution to cover material costs.
Participants can also choose to pay privately.
