Community

separator-image

Community is about finding the possibilities in the everyday. It’s about matching your abilities and your passions, and maybe learning some new skills along the way.

Partner with Rocky Bay for complete choice of how, when and where you spend your time – the possibilities are endless!

If you prefer a little more structure, a scheduled cooking, woodwork or arts class at The Studio could be for you. Work on your creative skills and push your imagination to the limit, while making some great friends in the process.

Perhaps you’d rather see where the day takes you, with a visit to the Community Centre at Mosman Park. Spend time in the music room, kitchen, or sitting on the lawn listening to music. If you’re the active sort, then a game of cricket or football may be for you.

You can also take some time out and delight your senses in one of Rocky Bay’s four Sensory Rooms located at Mosman Park, Nollamara, and Duncraig.

Explore the lights, sounds and textures in these state-of-the-art spaces filled with specialised technology that will help you develop social skills, interaction and awareness of others, in a quiet, safe and welcoming environment.

See more about our Sensory Rooms here.

Rocky Bay staff can assist you through more formalised programs such as ASDAN courses and the Duke of Edinburgh program.

Leisure and Community is also about friendship and a little respite. Partner with a Rocky Bay support worker to enjoy outings and activities during the day, or perhaps a sporting event on the weekend. We’ll do everything we can to match you with someone who feels more like a friend, someone who has similar interests to you. Go bowling, see a movie, visit your favourite café or just hang out. The possibilities are all there – it’s up to you.

FAQ

What is Community and Leisure?

Community and Leisure is all about doing the activities you like to do, accompanied by a Rocky Bay support worker. You can participate in activities at a Rocky Bay hub, or let our team collect you from your house* and take you, well, wherever you want to go! There are so many things you can do, we’re guided by what you enjoy most.
*Travel charges apply.

Is transport available?

Yes! Rocky Bay has a fleet of vans capable of safely transporting our customers door-to-door. Some charges will apply and you may be able to use your NDIS funding to pay for transport.

I want to be inconspicuous when I travel. Is that possible?

Yes. Rocky Bay has branded and non-branded vans to suit your preference.

What does it cost?

Costs will depend on the activity and the travel involved (if any). Ask our Customer Engagement team for pricing on specific activities.

What funding is available?

You can access services if you have an NDIS plan, Disability Services Commission funding, Medicare or if you want to fund your own services. We can also support you through the planning process if you do not have a plan already.
