DAACCS Social Events.
By running our own social events and participating in local community events as well, DAACCS is able to provide a rich Social Activity program. We assist our clients to socialise with the wider community by taking them to festivals and community events, out to various places of interest and nearby towns. We also organise volunteer work for our clients. This could be at Vinnies, Red Cross, National Zoo and more. Our multi-lingual team also provides support for the region’s ethnicity and peoples cultural traditions.
Our main principle is to stimulate our client’s social engagement and interactions to promote well-being, independence and motivation. We are also hoping to add in-house activities like Music, Arts and Crafts, Yoga to promote more social engagement possibilities. We look forward to providing a rich centre-based activity schedule to enhance our Social Support Services program. We are determined to provide the service that best suit our clients needs and ambitions.
Our Social Support Program is all part of the collaboration and coordination with clients and carers we undertake to select appropriate activities and assist in NDIS planning.
