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 are a creative social enterprise that supports people with intellectual disabilities 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.
Arts and crafts, cooking, music, gardening, and social interactions.
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.
Long term accommodations: Supported Independent Living.
We provide long 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, personal care, meals management, medical issues, recreational activities, community access and the opportunities to liaise with families and friends and with the rest of the community.
Short term accommodations: Respite services
Short term accommodations as respite services is designed to give a break for parents and carers of clients who require a high level of on going care and to allow participants live in a new environment.
Our mission and purpose is to empower people with a disability to learn new skills at home in order to live as independently as possible, and learn vocational skills at our Day Activity Centre in arts and crafts, in literacy and numeracy, and have the opportunity to interact with the rest of the community.
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.
