IMPACT Program

About the Impact Program

 

Our Impact Program assists young people with a disability to make the necessary life transitions from school to young adulthood.

 

The program operates on weekdays and each day you have the opportunity to participate in structured activities. These activities will help you to develop practical and social skills to assist you to build your independence. The Impact Program operates in groups so you can get to know new people and form lasting friendships.

 

TAG 5’s new Centre Workshop based in Rocklea provides a safe environment that allows you to have fun and learn new skills. At the Workshop, you will be able to get involved in a variety of activities including woodwork, cooking and crafts.

 

We plan a variety of different outings including bowling, mini golf, the arcade, museum visits, gym, futsal, swimming, the cinema and much, much more. You can also look forward to presentations from Rail Smart as well as the Police, Fire and Ambulance Services. We tailor the program to you, to help you reach your full potential.
