Work and Leisure

Alongside independent living skills, it is equally important that the people we support are engaged in meaningful activities within their communities and that they build resilient support networks. At THC we offer this support in a number of ways.

Transition to Work (TTW)

Transition to Work is a two year program that prepares people who have just left school for their transition into the world of employment or higher education.

The aim of the TTW program is to provide young people with opportunities to develop the skills and experiences they require to enter a job that suits them and one that they will like.

The Housing Connection's TTW program is, of course, individualised and support is provided on a one-to-one basis. Every person receiving a service develops a plan that is unique to that individual. Even if two people have the same work goal they may have different pathways to achieving that goal. All activities are planned to meet individual needs and overcome individual barriers. Opportunities include work skills training, communication and social skills, work experience and work placement.

Who is it for?

To be able to access Transition to Work, you need to:

  • live in NSW
  • have a disability as defined by the Disability Services Act 1993
  • have completed year 12
  • undertake an eligibility assessment.

These ADHC funded programs provide contemporary learning, skills and community access opportunities for adults with disability. As with all of our support, these are person centred programs designed to provide the meaningful life as defined by the person we support – to participate in their community and enjoy a range of purposeful recreational and leisure programs. They include skill development, vocational activities, adult education, recreation, sport and leisure.
