Jackie Phillpott

Area Manager

The highlight of my role is being able to be a part of an area that is consistently looking at ways to improve diversity, inclusion and growth for participants in our region.

Sharon Leonard

Centre Based Coordinator

At the Life Skills Centre, we excel in providing customers with choice, learning new skills and promoting daily tasks. We strive to help provide strategies so participants can reach their goals.

“Going [to respite] gives me a break, gives mum a break and gives both my brothers a break. You have a lot of fun, meet new people and make nice friends.”
