Our mission is to provide individualised support to people of all ages living with physical and intellectual disabilities.
GPSO operates a disability day program centre in both our Griffith and Leeton facilities. We offer engaging group activities in a state of the art facility designed to develop and empower each individual to become independent and achieve their identified goals. Our day program aims to build and improve on social skills to form long lasting friendships, develop emotional and self regulation abilities and be a part of a community that works together.
Our experienced staff will deliver a meaningful and person-centred program for each Participant, catered to their needs and goals.
Depending on individual needs and funding, day programs may be delivered in a 1:1 or group setting. Activities may include but are not limited to cooking, beauty therapies, sport, art and craft, gardening, workshop, fitness and hydrotherapy, dancing and social outings.
GPSO provides personal care and assistance with daily living tasks for people living with a disability.
GPSO assists Participants to develop daily living skills and provides support with a variety of personal care tasks:
Community participation aims to increase the Participant’s independence and to participate as a valued and active member of the community.
