Learning Creative Skills was founded in 2017 by a group of passionate disability support workers whose vision is to improve the lives of people with a disability as we recognise that people with disability face additional barriers to participate in mainstream services. We provide a wide range of disability support services across Adelaide, which can be delivered at home or at our day option centre.
We are a creative social enterprise that supports artists with intellectual disabilities, promotes their work and advocates for their inclusion in contemporary art practice.
Artists at Learning Creative Skills are encouraged to develop a visual art practice that is authentic and reflective of their particular interests and passions.
Our mission and purpose is to empower people with a disability with numerous opportunities to learn new skills in art, in digital literacy, pottery, and in tshirt printing.
We also offer the opportunity for participants to engage in the activities of their choice such as in music, rock painting, gardening, console gaming, and relaxation.
We strive to educate, to enhance skills, as we embrace diversity to the fullest, offering exceptional tailored services to meet individuals goals.
LCS aims to build the capacity of individuals, enhance creativity, confidence and skills and participate in the community to improve their overall quality of life.
A world that only sees abilities.
To provide life skills and to enable participants to become valued members of the general community.
Integrity – We do what we say
Care – We act with diligence and empathy

Achievement – Helping people to achieve their full potential
We exist to help people along the journey to live their best life.
Learning Creative Skills has partnered with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to help people with disability live healthy, fulfilling and connected lives.
As an NDIS partner in the community, we provide recreational and vocational activities, supported independent living and support coordination that will link you to the NDIS and to the mainstream community.
Learning Creative Skills provides Support Coordination to help participants understand their NDIS Plan and get the support they need to achieve their NDIS goals.
Participants are at the heart of every decision. Our tools support participants and the people close to them to make decisions on their NDIS goals and how their plan is used to achieve this. This includes taking every opportunity to help Participants understand their management of the NDIS plan.
