JOB

Supportive Enterprise schemes provide real jobs with real money for people living with a disability or recovering from mental illness, and opportunities for volunteers.  The Repsychlers Op Shop and our Grounds Maintenance program at Tweed Heads are both part of this scheme.

Our Carer’s Respite: Carers & Work service provides support to carers of people living with mental illness, through a range of out of home activities.  Momentum provides access to day-to-day living skills programs, outreach support and social opportunities through our existing Mental Health services.  We have programs to help young people connect, learn life skill, coping skills and resilience, and still simply have some fun.

Volunteer with us! Volunteers make an extraordinary contribution within our communities and play an important role by supporting us to deliver our programs and services through a variety of functions.

LIFE

In-home and community access support helps people living with a disability live in their own homes in the community, through assistance with personal care and daily living as well helping people be able to get into their community and participate.

Our Allied Health practitioners provide a range of flexible preventative-focused services, including Positive Behaviour Support.

Mental health outreach services help people living with mental illness who are exiting acute care, increase independence and participate in daily community activities, through strengthening daily living skills and self-care strategies.

Joining in with our centre-based programs or visiting one of our community centres let you connect with our communities, as much and as often as you choose:

Club Latitude at Tweed Heads is a vibrant and innovative centre, offering people living with a disability the opportunity to learn new skills, develop friendships and further increase independence.

The Day to Day Living program, run in the Connections Centre in Tweed Heads, assists people living with mental illness through activities to help improve life skills and participation in the community and a range of social group activities.

Bunyarah-ga Wellbeing promotes individual and community well-being, as well as highlighting the impact of drug and alcohol abuse for Aboriginal people.  Involving members from Aboriginal communities around the Tweed region, the program incorporates education, information and Yarning Circles with a wide range of culturally appropriate, practical support.
