Referrals and using our services
Referrals can be made by a family member, your doctor, an organisation or you can contact us directly. The LSSP Coordinator, Sheila Pring will make an appointment to visit you at your home and have a chat. This will determine whether there is a match between your needs and our service.
Volunteers are an essential part of this program. A variety of rewarding roles are available in both group and individual services. No experience is necessary but if you have an LR license to drive a bus or experience supporting people with a range of disabilities, your previous experience will be put to good use.
If you have some spare time and feel you would like to make a difference in someone's life please give us a ring on 02 6628 0265 and enquire.
