Endeavour Learning and Lifestyle Geebung are opening their doors on Friday October 29 to showcase the life-changing services it offers to people with a disability.
The public are invited to come and discover the massive difference Endeavour can make to the lives of people with a disability.
“The open day is an opportunity for people to come in and see first-hand what Endeavour Foundation is all about,” said Service Coordinator Karen Scull.
“The support and skills developed by clients at the service can literally change their lives and provide increased quality of life,” said Karen.
“We support the clients to develop skills important to living a healthy and positive life like communication, literacy and numeracy, safety, computer skills, cooking and grocery shopping and fitness.
“Fitness classes are so important to our clients – maintaining health and fitness in adults with a disability is core to supporting their quality of life. “Horse riding is excellent cardiovascular exercise – and gives our clients a sense of confidence and independence.”
Over half a million Australians have intellectual disability, 61% of people with intellectual disability have a severe or profound limitation in 'core' activities of daily living.
The open day will highlight benefits of the Learning and Lifestyle and the public are invited to join in on the activities.
Endeavour Foundation provides support, accommodation, training and vocational opportunities for more than 3,400 people with a disability across Queensland and in Sydney to help them lead an ordinary life.
