Community Activities and Life Skills
Fairhaven has a range of life skill support options to assist people living with disability. We focus on the goals and aspirations of each person – we encourage you in making your own choices to increase your independence.
Fairhaven’s team of qualified support staff are highly skilled professionals who value and respect peoples abilities, and encourage clients to achieve personal goals. We practice a flexible and creative approach to learning while working collaboratively with families and carers.
We focus on individual needs and goals to ensure people increase their independence and are better connected within their communities.
