This service supports and assists people to undertake everyday tasks in their home or local communities, increasing their development and skills as well as boosting their self confidence and independence. 

This service establishes volunteer assistance within the participant’s home or community to develop their skills. This means providing assistance in attending appointments, shopping, bill paying, taking part in social activities and maintaining contact with others.

We also provide individual life skills development, public transport training and recreational participation. We also assist a person to develop and maintain daily budgets, including assisting in planning purchases as well as individual training provided in the home for general life skills to increase independence.

Social enterprise employment opportunities

Social enterprises are businesses that trade to intentionally tackle social problems, improve communities, provide people access to employment and training, or help the environment. At IDSS we have developed IDSS HQ Enterprises, a host of micro businesses providing employment opportunities to people with a disability across a variety of industries including hospitality, manufacturing, dog grooming and retail.

In doing so creating a unique opportunity for customers to indulge in the culinary delights of Australian sourced meats, cheeses and wines.

Have you seen our dog wash?

Working with our local community we provide opportunities for our participants to get their hands dirty! Washing the local dogs offers social skill development by meeting new people. Our dog wash can be accessed anywhere on the Sunshine Coast. Your payment is a donation to ensure the next dog can receive the same treatment.
