Welcome to The Life Skills Centre

Providing an enriching and supportive environment where people are encouraged to achieve their optimum potential through interaction and participation.

The LifeSkills Centre is an active day service that assists people living with a disability to identify any goals they may have for their future. Our activities are created with each person’s special needs and skills in mind. The LifeSkills Centre’s celebration of small accomplishments is resulting in people dreaming a little bigger and seeing themselves in a new light of what they are capable of doing.
