OC Connections will be offering it’s wealth of knowledge, experience and advocacy in supporting people with disability within the City of Casey through provision of individualised supports where people can choose what they do, and how, when and where the do it.
WHAT DOES OC CONNECTIONS IN CASEY MEAN FOR YOU?
With OC Connections offering services and support in the City of Casey, people with a disability living in the community will have more choices and opportunities to:
- find the support and activity that suits their needs
- build independence and confidence
- engage and interact with their community and its members with confidence and ease
- gain the skills and support to find meaningful community options
It also means that carers, support workers, families and advocates will have more options to assist them in finding the right service for the people they support. The flexibility of the services we will provide will allow us to cater our hubs, staff support and activities to the needs of the Casey community.
OC Connections, through OCC Enterprises, already provide opportunities for Supported Employment in Casey via our car wash services. In the following months, we will be building on this service by offering further employment opportunities and pathways via our School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) for participants to take part in.
