Young Adults Weekend
This short stay program is for young adults with a neuromuscular condition aged between 18-30. This program was developed by special request from the young adults in the MDNSW community who wanted an opportunity to get together with other young people like them and have some fun as well as learn independent living skills.
Taking the big step of moving out of home and into independent living is huge for any young person, but for a young man with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, there is so much more to consider and plan for.
What happens over the weekend?
Each retreat has different activities but most involve getting out and about together, group activities and workshops focussed on learning the important skills to live an independent life.
Activities in past YA Weekend’s away have included dinner outings, road trips to the Hunter Valley, robotics, beach time, learning new independent living skills, like doing your own laundry, how to work a washing machine, cooking skills and more!
Do you have the right funding?
You will need funding in the Core Supports area of your NDIS plan for short stays. We can talk to you about how to get the necessary funding in your plan.
It’s important that you book your place now to ensure that there is time to get funding in your NDIS plan.
