Community Connections

Let Possability help you or your family member get involved in your local community.

Wide range of activities:

Our Community Connections program 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.

Matching interests:

We assist 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.

Daily Tasks:

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. Check with your Possability consultant.
