SWARA Learning and Life Skills 

We provide choices for skill development to assist clients to achieve their own goals and aspirations. Our programs provide a wide range of options to suit all abilities.

Our programs develop skills for independent living including literacy, numeracy, domestic skills, baking, cooking, hospitality, metal recycling, horticulture, and physical activity influencing social interaction, relationships, and friendships, which contribute to community involvement.

Our literacy and numeracy programs are tailored to individual needs, enabling clients to progress at their own pace in order to achieve their potential. The support of volunteers and students provide a safe learning environment using computer programs which empower clients to embrace and understand the use of modern day technology.
