Lifestyle Support Services (LSS) provides the Deaf and hard of hearing community with access to one-on-one support in Auslan, allowing participants to learn and develop the skills and confidence to live independent lives.
By supporting participants using their primary language, we aim to reduce the requirement for Auslan interpreters in situations where they may not be needed and reduce the strain on our participant's interpreting packages.
LSS hosts a range of group programs and activities throughout the year for our participants. Our activity program aims to enable individuals to participate and engage in community, social and recreational activities.
The outings are based on the needs and interests of the group and can include:
- Live Sporting Matches
- Cultural exhibitions
- Holiday related events
- Regular special interest clubs and groups
Activities are varied and are focused on bringing participants together, providing access to a wider network and the opportunity to socialise.
LSS team members facilitate these events, provide transport before and after and offer assistance to participants during the program. Group support participants love the opportunity to join in, have fun and be part of the community.
