My name is Carolyn, and I have the privilege of heading an incredibly talented group of people devoted to providing the absolutely best support and care to our community members with a disability in Mudgee, Kandos, Rylstone, Gulgong and surrounding areas.
Lifeskills Plus Inc. is a local, not for profit organisation that provides a diverse range of services that support people with disabilities and their families in the Mid-West. For over 25 years people have been able to count on the full support of Lifeskills Plus Inc.
We pride ourselves on being flexible, focused on individuals and always ‘going the extra mile’. Our staff are a well-trained, motivated and fun loving group that are eager to share their skills and interests with people. We are also lucky to be able to rely on a great bunch of volunteers who freely give their time and valuable experience.
In June 2014 we started the development of our new Community Centre in 13 Oporto Road. Stage 1 was the creation of our respite facility and has been completed. Lifeskills Plus is now able to offer no less than four temporary respite beds in a wonderful relaxing environment with its own purpose-built respite garden and an interactive sensory garden.
It is again full steam ahead this year with Stage two. Stage 2 will commence with the completion of three designated program rooms which will give us additional flexibility to simultaneously provide a variety of individualised programs. Further down the track we will also see the creation of a unique multi-sensory "snoezelroom". We will keep you posted on progress of these exciting developments on this web site and our popular Facebook page..
