For over ten years a group comprising of people with intellectual disabilities, their family members, carers and other committed community members has gathered monthly in the Monsignor Peter Jeffrey Centre.
Recently the group has joined the L’Arche Australia group with the intention of expanding the scope of assistance that can be provided to members and their families. It is envisaged that this will begin with day programs teaching life skills and move to permanent twenty-four hour accommodation.
We can all appreciate the need for this as carers of our members age and worry about care provision for their special people with intellectual disabilities.
If you would like to help with this important work our group would welcome you with open arms. Just contact the Parish Office and they will put you in contact with us.
