independent ENDEAVOURS is a free service for those aged 16-65 with a significant barrier to accessing employment or engaging with the community. 

independent ENDEAVOURS offers group workshops and outdoor programs to enhance your life skills. Weekly workshops address coping strategies, increased independence, or practical skills for entering the workforce. All programs are recovery and strengths-based, with a focus on personal growth. You may want to participate on more than one program simultaneously.

For those considering employment, the programs also provide an opportunity to showcase your personal strengths, reliability, punctuality and teamwork. References can be provided and you may also be eligible for one-on-one assistance with job search and in-job support through our EmploymentWorks! service.

Project Twin Streams
Join us for a weekly outdoor experience, maintaining native trees along stream banks, potting at our plant nursery, and nurturing community spaces. You’ll learn about plants, wildlife and growing your own from seed.  Hard physical labour is not required. Come and enjoy the fresh air and company of others and make a positive impact on your community. A light lunch or sausage sizzle is provided.
