Welcome to BCR Communities Jess
Ever since she participated in some woodworking sessions at a Men’s Shed years ago, 33-year-old NDIS participant, Jessica has been very keen to create with wood again.
As luck would have it, Jessica lives next door to Jesse, an NDIS participant who has been receiving support from BCR Communities for the last five years.
So when Jesse mentioned to Jessica that he does woodwork all the time at BCR and there is a whole shed of cool tools, she was excited.
One quick tour of the Activities Hub was all it took for Jessica to know she had found her place.
She couldn’t have had a better teacher for her first session than our BCR Communities volunteer and very experienced carpenter Wayne Grumley.
Jessica came to her session with a fold-out table she had previously made that needed fixing. With her table soon restored, the last part of her session was spent dreaming up a new design for a bedside table with five drawers. Wayne sketched up her ideas and the two will start the project next session.
