Life Skills

Supporting you to develop the skills you need for improved living or pursuing your interests and aspirations

Multicap Tasmania provides opportunities to supports for people with disability to develop new skills and to pursue their goals through our skills-based learning, recreation and social activities.

Our programs are flexible, and generally operate between 9am and 3pm on weekdays, however we currently offer group activities on Saturdays, and social and fitness activities on weekday evenings, as well as school holiday programs.

Life Skills can be developed through programs in our Community Hubs located in Wynyard, Burnie, Devonport and Launceston, but may also be undertaken individually in the community or at your home, and at a time that suits you.

Working together with you and your family or support network, we will create a personalised plan around your goals and aspirations, and identify the programs and supports that will assist you to achieve them. Support can complement your existing informal supports, such as your family, friends and other community members.

Multicap Tasmania caters to many different needs and interests in a safe and supportive environment, both within our hubs and in the local community.

Our qualified staff take a person-centered approach, and are committed to providing innovative and stimulating programs and activities designed to enhance your life skills and promote choice, inclusion, independence and wellbeing.
