Lifestyle Support Services (LSS) provides the Deaf and hard of hearing community with access to one-on-one support in Auslan for Daily Activities, and Social and Community Participation, 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.
We match participants with support workers based on communication, interests and temperament to ensure the best possible outcomes.
The LSS team supports participants using a tailored, holistic and person-centred approach. Our everyday activities include:
- Housekeeping and basic home maintenance
- Navigating public transport
- Shopping and managing finances
- Meal preparation
- Personal Hygiene
