Mackay - Learning and Lifestyle

Learning and Lifestyle hub @ Mackay

At Endeavour Foundation we focus on ability and making things happen. Whether it’s learning life skills, living independently, socialising and making new friends, getting job ready or exploring interests and trying new things, we work with you to make your possibilities a reality.

Together, we’ll co-design your personal learning journey to make sure that it fits your needs and gets you to where you want to be.

The Mackay Learning and Lifestyle hub offers a variety of spaces and activities to meet everyone’s interests. The hub includes a large kitchen to create delicious meals and learn recipes to take and try at home.
