What we do

The Bridge Connects can:

  • assess your eligibility for services
  • give you information on what we can provide
  • talk with you about your needs and interests
  • support you with some of your decision making.

Together with Connects, you can visit some of our locations to help you decide where you might like to go. You may also be interested in coming to one of our services for a couple of days to try it out, help you decide if you would like to continue coming to Connects. Our friendly staff can tell you more about this.

We have different ways of supporting your needs and enabling you to do what you want, so you can achieve a range of goals and interests, including:

  • learning new skills
  • preparing you for work
  • completing courses
  • personal development
  • social and leisure activities.

You can chose how to best use your funding by choosing different types of support:

  • sharing your support (groups)
  • individual support.

If you don’t receive funding, we can also provide support through Fee for Service. This allows you to use your own money to take part in any of our services. Connects will work together with you to develop a package of supports to suit your needs. We will help you identify your goals and how we can work together to achieve them.
