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 be included in the mainstream community.
We are a creative social enterprise that supports people with intellectual disabilities and people with mental illness in order to promote their rights and to advocate for their inclusion in the general community.
At Learning Creative Skills, we offer recreational and vocational activities at our day activity centre located at Andrews Farms where participants can engage in a range of activities of their choice.
The Art program is structured to operate as a social enterprise, meaning revenue derived from the program’s activities is invested back into the program to increase its artistic and social outcomes. Income derived from the sale and exhibition of artwork directly benefits the artist.
We also provide long term and short term accommodations in a safe and caring environment to enable participants live as independently as possible and feel at home in their own homes whilst our supportive staff assist with daily needs.
As a charity, Learning Creative Skills strives towards improving the lives of the vulnerable people so they can be productive and be accepted as valued members of the general community through teaching them useful skills, allowing them to access recreational and leisure activities and acquire homes of their own and enjoy life to the fullest just like everyone else.
We therefore rely on the support of our volunteers and the diverse ethnic communities who dedicate their effort in assisting us in all aspect of management and contribution.
To provide life skills and to enable participants to become valued members of the general community.
