Building relationships that make the difference

Lotterywest Funding

Directions are pleased to announce that our Lotterywest grant application was successful!

$89,614 has been approved towards the fit out of our new Volunteering Centre at 8 Blackburn Street, Maddington.

This will include a fully equipped office and training area for our ever increasing number of volunteers, their supervisors and a group activity area. Our therapists, who supervise volunteer students and other volunteers, have been enhancing our services, having a significant impact on the lives of people we support through providing additional perspective, developing innovative solutions to problems and barriers, ensuring positive behaviour support, running inclusive skill building groups, and working with family carers.

We will also be creating a registered “Changing Place” fully accessible bathroom with hoist, allowing people with disability of all ages and abilities from our community to change in a comfortable and private environment.
