Operating out of Oaks Estate, the Community Inclusion Program (CIP) is designed for people living with psycho-social disabilities who are ineligible for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funding.

The program offers participants access to quality information about services that can best meet their needs. Delivered by a peer network, the service provides information on relevant clinical services; advice on assistance with daily living skills; referrals to workshops for stress and anger management; assistance in securing and sustaining a tenancy; and information on social inclusion, education and job opportunities.

In addition, CIP aims to build the capacity and readiness of organisations and the community to operate within a nationally consistent approach to Information Linkage and Capacity building (ILC) outcomes.

The program aims to help participants to make optimum choices, enhance their skills and confidence, gain access to mainstream services, and shape and influence their community.
