Winter Appeal

Did you know that there are still a number of things not covered by the NDIS?

Donate Today

OC Connections is proud to provide a range of specialised and innovative support services which enhance the quality of life for people with an intellectual disability, and their families. Integral to this is the opportunity to achieve maximum independence as active members of the community.

Together we can make a difference

From purchasing beds, buses, and education aids through to promoting art programs and buying new sporting equipment, the money we raise through our OC-Achieve Fund helps participants learn new skills, improve their independence and build confidence in their daily lives.

As a not-for-profit, we rely heavily on your support.

Your contribution will be used to provide more opportunities outside the NDIS for OC Connections’ participants to achieve their personal goals – from assistive technology to achieve greater independence, through to support to gain employment.

To continue to support participants through the uncertainty of COVID and its impact on our operations we have developed new ways of doing things: employing more IT to connect with participants and run programs; providing additional learning and recreation activities in our houses and making sure all venues are safe are fully compliant with all infection control recommendations. Your support will further assist us to ensure our participants are safe while still working towards achieving their goals and aspirations.

Help achieve their goals and make dreams come true

OC Connections wants to create as many possibilities as we can to bring dignity and independence to people with disability by providing them with access to supports that assist them to live independently and to actively engage in their communities.

When you donate to the OC Achieve fund, you are helping people with disabilities to achieve their personal goals and live an independent and fulfilling life.

Where will your contribution go?

Thanks to the amazing support of people just like you, the Winter Appeal has previously funded the purchase of:

  • Sporting equipment so that participants learn new skills, increase their health and fitness, and build the confidence to join a local club
  • iPads to improve participants education and communication
  • Purchase of art supplies and equipment
  • Equipment for participants personal use 
  • Updating of furniture in our houses
  • Support for people to access new activities and events

Meet DAVID

David is a resident in one of OC Connections’ community living houses.  He loves to watch television, but had a tiny television that was hard to see.  His support worker, Miki, applied to the OC Achieve fund to purchase a new Smart TV and David was soon off to JB Hi Fi to purchase a new tv – just before his birthday!

“Thank you very much for organising the fund for TV for David, especially just before his birthday. We didn’t expect this to happen so quick!”, reported Miki.

Now David can comfortably sit and enjoy one of his favourite past times comfortably thanks to the OC Achieve fund and generous supporters like you!
