L.I.F.E.

The L.I.F.E. program is designed for those who wish to be employed, to grow, develop independence, expand their personal n e t w o r k s, and develop f r i e n d s h i p s a n d relationships. L.I.F.E services is a community employment and inclusion service with the focus on supporting the person in four key areas:

  • Lifelong Learning;
  • Inclusion and Involvement in their communities;
  • Developing Friendships and Relationships;
  • Paid E

L.I.F.E. services are provided on a one-to-one basis. L.I.F.E. services are flexible and responsive, and ebb and flow with the changing needs and choices of the person. The person directs and is involved in all aspects of planning and organizing their schedules including where, when and what type of support is required to meet their goals.

L.I.F.E based services employees support the person to increase their network of unpaid supports. Unpaid or “Natural” supports are people who are not paid to be in their life. Friends, family and co-workers are examples of “natural” supports.

L.I.F.E. is also an employment service. To be in L.I.F.E. services a person must want to work and develop independence.
