Community Connections

Anglicare

Our friendly, highly skilled team can assist people who are eligible for the NDIS to enjoy social activities and connect with the community. Our support will be different, based on what each person wants to do. For example, we can support you to participate in:

  • Social activities and events with family and friends
  • Trying new things or finding people who share your interests. You might want to be part of a community garden, go fishing, learn music, join a club or become a volunteer…the choice is yours
  • Getting out and about. You might like to go to cafes or go to the footy. Some people prefer to go to the movies, or to a concert…the choice is yours

What do you like to do? Whatever it is, our friendly team can provide the supports you choose based on your interests and what you enjoy. Anglicare provides support young children.

OAK-Possability

The Community Connections program of OAK-Possability provides exciting opportunities to participate in a wide range of social activities, physical exercise and community-based activities. Whatever your individual interests, we are dedicated to making it happen.

OAK-Possability assists clients to identify activities in the community that match their interests and then support them to access these activities. This helps reduce social isolation and promotes the development of independent social networks. This style of support can include community-based Day Service programs tailored to the individual.

Community Connections also assists clients to undertake daily tasks in the community, such as shopping, banking and attending medical appointments. It often includes learning to travel independently using public transport.
Where is it available?
We offer Community Connections across Tasmania. Services can be offered in rural areas, in addition to metropolitan and regional centres.
