CHSP and FOLKS

FOLKS is an evening and day respite program held at Wongaburra funded by the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP). FOLKS provides a social outing that includes leisure activities, light afternoon tea and a 3 course meal. Consumers have the opportunity to go on planned bus trips to many locations.

All consumers from the community have an open opportunity to join in any activity/outing within or outside of Wongaburra. Consumers also have the opportunity to be picked up and/or returned home when required.

By enabling the activity program to be used by both residents and consumers, this allows an informed transition into residential care. Consumers have an opportunity to become familiar with the lifestyle while building rapport with staff and volunteers.
