Experience your community

Permalink’s Group Activities and Community Programs  promote a holistic approach to empower the individuals we work with in their journey towards social activities, employment and personal development.

By offering a comprehensive set of outings, activities and programs, we assist in providing social engagements, skill development, confidence building and assistance with preparing for employment opportunities.

The emphasis on socialisation and community support, ensures that you feel connected, motivated and equipped to participate in wider community settings, build social networks and face the challenges of finding and retaining job security.

Opportunities and second chances allow us to improve, reflect and better ourselves from the daily challenges we face. Group & Community Programs are a steppingstone to experiencing new horizons and goals.
