Funded Courses for Adults with a Disability
Are you an adult with a disability?
Do you live at home?
And have an unpaid carer?
Do you want to connect with new people, have fun and learn new skills?
Central Coast Community College provides free social and recreational courses to eligible adults with a disability.
That means you can learn Art & Craft, Dance & Drama, Music, Fun & Games with us for free!
It means you can take a break from your normal life, experience independence and make some new friends too!
You can join over 80 students who are already hanging out and learning new skills in specialised classes with friendly and experienced tutors, while their carers receive regular respite from the caring role.
We have day, evening and weekend programs in Wyong, Gosford and Woy Woy to make it easy for you to join in the fun.
Who can join in?
The ICEP program is for adults with disability who:
- Are 18 years and over
- Have an unpaid carer, including people who receive a carer’s allowance
- Are living at home in the Gosford and Wyong Local Government Areas. People who currently live in ADHC funded or operated accommodation are not eligible.
How much does it cost?
ICEP is a funded by "Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC), NSW Department of Family and Community Services"http://www.adhc.nsw.gov.au/ , so there is no course fee for students.
However, students in some classes may need to pay a minimal amount for the cost of material (for example ingredients for cooking classes). We will let you know how much before you enrol.
How do I enrol
The College will take referrals from individuals, as well as ADHC and NGO Disability Services.
To make a referral contact Jean Ardley or Hazel Reinhard on 02 4348 4300.
