We are very excited to share with you our plans to renovate and extend Warrah’s Discovery Centre for young adults with disability in 2019. Discovery fosters a culture of personal development, with each person supported to build their capacity for self-determination and independence in adult life. Skills for life grow steadily through improved literacy, work and social opportunities, and the development of daily living skills.

Improvements to the Discovery Centre will include expanded activity and learning workrooms, an additional fully accessible bedroom and bathroom and improved kitchen accessibility. Short Stays for young adults living with their families are provided here too, also with a view to developing life skills and independence. A Discovery Short Stay is sometimes the very first overnight stay away from home for a young adult with disability!

Our Christmas Appeal is raising funds to furnish and equip the Discovery Centre. There is a long list of needs, starting with an accessible bed, a portable hoist, some large work tables, desktop computers and media equipment, outdoor furniture, soft furnishings…the list goes on! Your donation will help to equip Discovery for young adults, to ensure the best possible opportunities can be provided.

The Discovery Centre fills a real need in our community, accompanying young adults with disability as they make one of their most important life transitions. Thank you for your generosity in helping Warrah to support people with disability to be the best they can be. Your donation is tax deductible.
