Learning skills for life.

Daily living skills is about learning and practising skills that help you gain independence and confidence during your recovery journey. This program includes skills such as: administration, social media, computing, cleaning, cooking, growing fruit and vegetables, and working as part of a team.

 

Admin and Media Unit

In this unit, members take on a variety of administration and media roles. Our members run the reception area, complete administration tasks, learn how to use computers and use various forms of social media. We rely on members to help us run the Clubhouse so while you learn new skills, you are also helping build our community and promote the service.

 

Kitchen & Cafe Unit

We have a full commercial kitchen that our members run. In this unit members learn everything from basic food safety, knife and cooking skills all the way through to making that perfect barista coffee & customer service experience. Our Kitchen Unit cooks lunch every day and members lead the menu/budget planning, shop for ingredients as well as prepare a variety of healthy meals, five days a week.

 

Garden Unit

We’re proud of our inner-city garden and our members work hard to produce beautiful fruit and vegetables for our Kitchen Unit to prepare. Members in our Garden Unit work together to plan what we plant, water and weed the garden beds, and learn about permaculture, sustainable gardening and even run a member’s Enviro Club.

    Social connections can comprise of people we know; the friends we confide in, the family we belong to and the community we live in.
