  • BCR Communities NDIS Participants are Kicking Goals

    Make a letter box in the shape of a cow – no problem! Take on a 50km walking challenge – why not! Build a bar inside your house – let’s give it a go! When it comes to their goals and dreams, the NDIS participants at BCR Communities won’t hear the words ‘that’s too hard’ or ‘we don’t offer that here.’ The BCR NDIS support team take the participant’s goals very seriously and while not everything is possible, every attempt is made to support the participant to achieve them. For recently appointed BCR Work, Life & Training Coordinator, Tracy Hughes, it was this person centred approach that attracted her to the role. “Every disability service would love to offer person centred supports but BCR Communities is the first organisation I have worked for that is able to deliver it,” Tracy said. “We don’t expect participants to just slot in with established programs, we find out what they want to achieve and then design a personalised program around those goals.” “I have a strong connection to the community in the Bay & Basin and I am really excited about working with the schools, participants and their families to create the kind of NDIS support services that they really want and need – right here locally.” Proving anything is possible, NDIS participant Jessica has achieved her goal of building the cow-themed letter box she designed herself.  With the support of Tracy, 16-year-old School Leaver Employment Supports (SLES) participant Ryeleigh, took on the ‘50ks in May Challenge’, achieving his first ever fitness goal and raising hundreds of dollar for Multiple Sclerosis. While 19-year-old NDIS participant Bailey has started learning basic carpentry skills with smaller projects as he works up to building his dream bar at home.

  • SOCIAL GROUPS | BCR Communities

    AGEING WELL HISTORY BCR Communities Social Groups SPEND THE DAY WITH FRIENDS It’s time to get out of the house, have fun and spend time with your friends. The activities change every week – we might stay indoors for games, trivia or an art session or get in the bus and explore our stunning coastline or try a new café. While the activities may differ from week to week, what doesn’t change is the companionship, the conversation and something delicious for lunch! Click the buttons below to see the latest Social Group Activity Calendars. As of May 2024, we have a calendar for south Shoalhaven and one for north Shoalhaven. ​ May Calendar (south) May Calendar (north) Weekly Social Groups BCR Communities has a varied calendar of social activities throughout the week including day trips, lunches out, special events, walking groups, trivia, games, art, music and more. ​ ​ Making friends the easy way It is harder to keep socially connected as we age, friends and family move away or health problems make it more difficult to get out of the house. BCR Communities Social Groups makes regularly meeting up with friends simple and fun, with transport available to pick you up and drop you home. Join our online social community for connection every day of the week We know that sometimes it can be difficult to leave the house to catch-up with friends, meet new friends or simply share common interests with others. There are many reasons any one of us can become socially isolated. That’s why BCR has created the BCR Communities App. Think of it as an online, or digital, Town Square - a place to meet others and get connected. You might already be a part of a social app like Facebook, or you might be completely new to online communities – either way this App is for you! ​ You can download the BCR Communities App onto your iPhone, Android Phone, iPad or Tablet. You can even access it on your computer. Once you join BCR Communities, you will be able to take part in online discussions, share information, join interest groups – for example, the Gardening Group or the Walking Group, and take a look at our Community Connects Calendar for upcoming events and activities. Most importantly, you will be able to connect with people and make new friends. ​ If this is of interest to you, but you think you might need help let us know and one of our friendly team will be more than happy to assist! Join BCR Communities "I haven’t been in the Wednesday Social Group for very long but I’m so glad I joined because they are a lovely group. It is great to be out of the house and meeting new people. I used to be a nurse so I’ve always been drawn to being around people." WILMA
