Who’s Got Talent? Afford’s Got Talent! It was another sensational showcase of amazing performances at the annual Afford’s Got Talent event!

Celebrating Everyone’s Talents

Now in its 5th year, the Afford’s Got Talent event has become a true expression of creative abilities and a celebration of individuals achieving their goals.

The annual event is held to encourage every person, of every ability to get up and have a go. This year was yet another year of truly captivating performances, where talent shines bright!

An Afford Event That’s Purely For Our Clients’ Enjoyment

Afford’s Got Talent is unique to Afford and we’re so excited to offer this event purely for the enjoyment of our clients.

For months leading up to the event, our clients, supported employees, residents and SLES trainees work very hard to learn lyrics and perfect dance moves so that they can proudly deliver sensational group and individual performances for Afford’s Got Talent.

Performers from across Afford’s Day Programs, Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs), SLES programs and Group Homes took to the stage at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in Penrith to showcase their talents.

Costumes, makeup and performances are all coordinated by each Afford service and the performances are created by discussions between Afford staff and clients to ensure that the performance reflects the personal interests of everyone involved.

With such a variety of performances, the stage was always brimming with colour, movement and, of course, smiles!

Having Your Own Time in the Spotlight

Performers were well rehearsed and delivered sensational routines and at all times supported to give their best performance, while enjoying their moment of being in the spotlight.

There was lots of toe tapping and singing along, as performances included many musical favourites such as I Wanna Dance with Somebody (performed by the Far West Accommodation Choir), Bohemian Rhapsody (performed by SLES Preston trainee, Connor), Agadoo (performed by Cherrywood Day Program), Shake it Off (performed by Oran Park Day Program) and many, many more.

The event which was held over two nights this year, combined individual and group performances, which had the audience entertained from the beginning until the finale.

We are truly privileged to support our clients in developing their skills and confidence to express themselves through dance and song. Afford’s Got Talent is always a very successful and fun event that create memories for clients that they will cherish for a lifetime.
