Out and About Group (Kingsley)
Calling all teens to 24 year-olds!
The Out and About Group is an opportunity for you to develop independence and life skills within the wider community.
The group will involve collaborating with others to develop a plan, identifying a journey route using public transport, practising using money and participating in identified activities.
As we will be practising money skills, we kindly ask you to provide a small allowance each day of $10 so you can purchase food or a drink when we are out in the community.

- SmartRider with sufficient funds,
- Ability to self regulate and manage behaviour,
- Independence with self-care. i.e toileting,
- Prior completion of some community access skills,
- Must be able to independently communicate needs and wants with others.
Why should I attend?
- Increase independence and confidence in accessing the community,
- Improve money skills and build friendships with peers/support network,
- Develop social problem-solving skills in the community,
- Up-skill strategies for support workers to continue their support.
This group runs for four days from 12 -15 April. Participants begin Day 1 at Therapy Focus Kingsley.
