Supporting you in your local community

Permalink believes in the power of community and the vital role it plays in wellbeing and personal growth. Our Social and Community Participation service is designed to facilitate meaningful community engagement and foster social inclusion.

 We understand that people with disabilities may face challenges in accessing social engagement opportunities, and we are committed to bridging this gap.

At Permalink, we prepare and plan well for community support. We think about risks, alternative plans, and agreed backups but most importantly, the aspirations of the individual are taken into consideration.
