Supported Trips & Outings

Our 'Outings' program is designed to provide support and cater to individuals with higher needs. We ensure a memorable day out for you by arranging transportation from your home to the destination and back.

Each month, we organise exciting trips, including concerts at Brisbane City Hall, movie outings, theatre shows, thrilling mystery drives, and heartwarming visits to the kindergarten, where you can enjoy an intergenerational playdate with our young friends.
