Community Access & Support
Staff and volunteers provide a variety of person-centred programs that encourage and support participants to make choices, engage in community or centre based activities and build meaningful friendships with others who share similar goals and interests.
Mary MacKillop Outreach (MMO) provides a range of services that support people with disability to stay active, meet new people and become more connected to their community.
Our flexible, personalised programs are tailored to your interests and to meeting your goals through new and stimulating individual and group experiences.
Centre Based Programs
We offer individual and group recreational activities in a safe and friendly environment based at the Mary MacKillop Outreach centre in Haberfield. Our specialised staff will work with participants to design programs that are directly related to interests and goals. People can choose to take part in activities such as art, cooking and sport – our specialised staff will work with each individual to design programs that are directly related to their own interests and goals.
The centre provides a space which creates social communities and connections, enables opportunities for quiet reflection or stress reduction and simply acts as a mood enhancer for those who attend.
The Men’s Shed is located on the grounds of MMO in “The Cottage”. The service provides manual arts, upholstery and woodwork activities for people living in the local area who may feel marginalised or isolated, including those with disability. The Cottage focuses on improving wellbeing within a social, supportive and confidential community setting.
Our community programs are designed to keep people connected to their local community through active involvement in mainstream activities of choice and to offer people the opportunity to participate in new experiences.
In Home Support
We can support those in their home to achieve goals and develop living skills such as using public transport, shopping, cooking and cleaning. We will work with people to develop a plan that gives them the tools to live the independent life they choose.
Our specialised staff will assist people to develop their skills and work towards achieving employment and educational goals.
