Training & Support

Helping participants lead an independent life

Westside provides group training and one on one support for people with NDIS funding for these activities.

One on one support is tailored to meet each person’s needs and goals. It operates Monday to Saturday.

Group training is provided Tuesday to Friday. The two types are: Lifeskills & Independent Living and Employment Preparation.

All programs have been professionally developed and are delivered by qualified staff. The group sessions are delivered at our Yeerongpilly office. We have arranged transport to our office for some participants (please contact us for details). Download our brochure for more information.
