Afford supports over 100 residents in 28 Group Homes across the country. Afford is a leader in Group Homes in Australia because of our commitment to delivering The Afford Lifestyle. We go above and beyond to ensure that every resident has support to live independently, on their terms to achieve their goals.

Shoalhaven Club Grants

Thanks to 2019 Shoalhaven Club Grants, residents of Afford’s Worrigee and Nowra Group Homes can enjoy greater healthy lifestyle choices and sensory engagement.

Healthy Lifestyles

Nowra residents can put on their master chef hats and get cooking in the sunshine with the Shoalhaven Club Grant funding the purchase of a new outdoor pizza BBQ! The $5,500 grant is also being put towards encouraging healthy eating choices through programs and skills development.

Just in time for the warmer weather, the BBQ will give all the residents the chance to make their favourite meals using healthy vegetables and more. After all their cooking, residents can enjoy meals together as friends and create wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Sensory Stimulation and Fun

In Worrigee home residents, the Shoalhaven Club Grant will be put towards creating a sensational sensory games room for residents. The $4,000 grant will support the purchase of sensory friendly games and supports to cater to the needs and abilities of each resident.

Lisa joined the Nowra home around 12 months ago after living in a nursing home. She is a vibrant young woman and the nursing home simply didn’t suit her interests or give her the chance to make friends her own age.

Live The Life You Want

Since moving into her Nowra home, Lisa recognises the difference it has made in her self-confidence and overall happiness. She now has the chance to live life how she wants. Lisa receives support if and when she needs it and can get involved in activities that she likes. Most importantly, she has made great friends and loves her new life.

In celebration of International Day of People with Disability, Afford is proud to showcase disability in Australia so individuals can live the life they want under the NDIS. Afford homes are places where individuals can feel safe, their choices are respected, and where lifelong friendships are made.
