Our Group Activities aim to support our participants to engage with their community, enhance their social relationships and improve their independence in daily personal activities.

 

HQ Kitchen Rules 

Create simple, tasty meals at the IDSS Hub. Help choose the recipe. Write a list of ingredients. Go shopping for the ingredients. Bring the ingredients back to the IDSS Hub and cook the meal. Best of all: eat the finished product.

 

Art

Paint and draw. It doesn't matter if you are just starting out or the next Van Gogh. Bring your own materials or we can supply them.

 

Craft

Get Crafty and make everything from dream-catchers to egg carton sculptures. Regular themes such as Easter, Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day and Australia Day.

 

Line dancing

Boot scootin', toe tappin', feet shufflin' fun (we cannot promise that we won't play Billy Ray Cyrus...)

 

Yoga

Yoga is a mind and body practice combining physical postures, breathing techniques and meditation or relaxation. It has many benefits: it decreases stress, relieves anxiety and improves flexibility and balance.

 

Tai Chi

Tai Chi is often described as 'meditation in motion'. In this low-impact, slow-motion exercise, you go without pausing through a series of motions named for animal actions - for example, 'white crane spreading its wings' - or martial arts moves. Tai chi can be easily adapted for anyone, from the most fit to people confined to wheelchairs or recovering from surgery.

 

Card and Board Games

UNO, Monopoly, Jenga... and many other games to boot! Have fun in a group playing the card and board games everyone knows and loves.

 

Oh No It's Tuesday

Learn money skills, how to cook affordable and nutritious meals, catch public transport, domestic skills and everything in between.
