Our Post:

Afford’s fleet of more than 200 cars, vans and wheelchair accessible vehicles travel over 1.5 million kilometres each year to support individuals to get out and experience the broader community. We are committed to creating as many opportunities as possible for our clients to enjoy time at local parks, community events and visiting new places.

Blacktown Day Program staff and clients are regularly on the move. Staff actively organise a range of different outings for clients to try new life experiences.

Outings That Interest You

Most of the outings centre around the interests of the clients who attend the site. The group has walked down to the local park for a fitness session using the park equipment. They have also hopped into an Afford van to attend a local community event.

Live a Healthy and Balanced Lifestyle

The team has visited parks, funfairs, various beaches, shopping centres and much more! Each outing has also subtly worked on client skills in communication, social interaction and learning more about living a healthy lifestyle.

When you’re part of the Afford community, you will always have opportunities and support to explore the world around you.

Recently Blacktown Day Program staff and clients headed out to Cattai National Park. While there, they strolled along the many walking tracks to enjoy the sunshine and outdoors. They then stopped for lunch at the picnic tables and spent some time together as friends.

For another trip, clients decided that they wanted to head into the city to see the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge. They have even had the chance to visit Sydney’s iconic Luna Park!

Make Friends for Life

Outings such as these create strong bonds and great friendships. The team at Blacktown Day Program all get on well together and support each other to achieve their goals. They are more than a Day Program they are a family.
