• make a scarecrow
• grow crops

From planting a seed to enjoying the fruits of your hard work, Garden Gurus will bring out that green thumb in everyone!

Creative Crew

Get your creative juices flowing! With the help of your support worker, you can learn to sew, hone your photography skills or paint your very own masterpiece – all you need to bring is your imagination.

Our range of activities allows you to experiment with different mediums and work on individual and group projects. You’ll also get the opportunity to develop more unique skills like tie-dying, pottery, and sewing.

Literacy & Numeracy

Batter and Bake is a fun and easy way to learn basic cooking skills. Master your own signature dish, prepare a variety of sweet and savoury foods, or pick from our HELP gardens to create a delicious and nutritious meal.

You’ll also develop skills like chopping, using utensils and kitchen appliances, and measuring and following recipes – as well as cleaning up and being safe! Whether you’re baking for one or cooking up a feast for friends Batter and Bake will help you channel your inner Masterchef.

Independent Life Skills

Become more independent and prepare for things like moving out of home, getting your first job, and learning how to handle and manage your money.

You’ll make new connections at Hub and out in the community, and gain important life skills that will set you up for the next stage of your HELP journey.

Social Outings

Will activities change from week to week?

No two weeks are the same at our HELP Hubs. For example, if you choose to do the Garden Gurus activity, you may spend your first two weeks planning and researching your garden, then move on to planting seeds and cultivating your crop as the weeks progress and the seasons change. Each week you will be learning new skills to help you achieve your goals.

Can I do these activities in a group or one-on-one with a support worker?

Our Hubs offer both 1:1 and 1:3 support options.

All of our activities are delivered in small groups. You can choose to be supported on a one-on-one basis with a support worker, or as part of a group with two other participants and a support worker, depending on your needs.

What days can I do to Hub? Is there a minimum number of days I have to attend?

All of our Hubs are open Monday to Friday and there is no minimum number of days you have to attend. You can attend as many days as you like (depending on Hub availability).

Can I choose what times I want to go to Hub?

Our Hubs offer morning sessions, afternoon sessions, or all-day sessions. You can choose which session or sessions you prefer to attend.
