The Genesis Community Support Program assists people with an intellectual disability to develop the life skills needed to become more independent in the community.
Support takes place in the client's residence for usually up to two hours per week. Skill development areas can include budgeting, cooking, cleaning, shopping and developing menu plans.
UnitingCare Harrison staff help each client develop a support plan with goals that detail what they want to learn from the program and why. These goals will be reviewed throughout the duration of service provision.
Clients will have the opportunity to develop program goals within a person centered approach where support focuses on the aspirations and wishes of the individual.
