2022 has been one busy year for the Flexi Choices team and all the amazing people they support. They provided over 400 group events for people across Mambourin and over 500 one-to-one activities chosen by individuals. They even hosted their first weekend away!

First overnight stay

This year we trialed our first overnight stay to Phillip Island. Andrew, a Supported Employee from our Derrimut team, had a great weekend away with staff member, Ashleigh. They visited the Penguin Parade, Koala Conservation Centre, Churchill Island and the Antarctic Journey at the Nobbies.

We are pleased to say that they both had a great time, and we will soon be offering supported holidays to the wider Mambourin community.
