What’s next for your child after they graduate school?

Community Access Care engages with many parents and carers of teenagers in their final year of schooling. Schools have close relationships with various community groups and advocates to stay abreast of events and initiatives offering disability services and community engagement opportunities. These close relationships mean parents and carers are continuously aware of activities that benefit their children’s personal growth.

But when children leave school, it is up to carers to find opportunities for their child to access:

  • Social groups and activities 
  • Employment and training opportunities
  • NDIS registered groups and activities
  • Ways to utilise NDIS funding for your child. 

But where to start? 

We offer disability support services that can keep your teenager engaged with the community and have fun doing it.

Community Access Care disability support services for your school leave

School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES)

Our School Leaver Employment Supports service can help your child start their personal career journey by identifying their interests, building their career profile and exploring potential occupations.

Monthly Activity Programs

Our monthly activity programs offer a range of activities, including cooking, sewing, fishing, bowling, art and craft, woodworking and our Social BBQ. These events are a great social opportunity for your child while helping them improve their motor and creativity skills. These events are open to the public, and you are more than welcome to accompany your Participant. View our Activity Calendar here. 

Community Car Wash

Our Community Car Wash provides a meaningful, sustainable and fairly paid employment and training opportunity for people living with a disability in our community. The qualities and skills Participants will acquire through the program will give them the experience to further their skills elsewhere.

Supported Independent Living

Independent living for people with disabilities is a scary thought for parents and carers, but it is a hard reality. Our Supported Independent Living (SIL) service enables Participants to discover ways to manage living in their own homes as independently as possible. Your child may surprise you with their abilities to do tasks like washing, ironing and cleaning etc. Tasks that may seem minor for some will build your child’s confidence and self-esteem.

As well as Community Access Care’s disability support services, there are other easily accessible spaces for disability resources. 

The post-school transition can be a trying time in parents, carers and children’s lives. But it doesn’t have to be. Community Access Care started because we wanted to help people with disabilities have an improved quality of life and live as independently as possible. 

Whether being dropped off for an hour activity without parent supervision or living independently, we offer disability support services that will cater for all abilities and stages of life. We can advise you on the best support for you or your loved one.
