If you are looking at developing your social skills, such as starting conversations, maintaining friendships or identifying and responding to your and others’ emotions, the “People Wise”program is a great place to start.

If you love cooking and want to learn some new recipes and kitchen skills in a fun small group setting, Cooking up a Storm might be for you! It’s a great way to try new foods as well as make new friends, while practising shopping, nutrition, cooking and kitchen safety skills.
The Cooking up a Storm group meet at The FSWA Hub (80 Landsdale Road, Darch) every Tuesday during term from 10:30am – 1:30pm. The term starts with three weeks of making yummy breakfast meals, followed by six weeks of making nutritious main meals and then one final week when we will order pizza as a treat and make a delicious dessert! 
Each session, the group votes on which recipe they would like to cook, then write a shopping list and purchase groceries, cook a meal and eat together. After lunch, the group also clean up their work area, wash and dry the dishes and pack up any leftovers to be safely stored and taken home at the end of the day.
Limited spaces are available, so get your expression of interest in as soon as possible for each new term!

The FSWA School Holiday Program is available to young, independent individuals who are suited to a 3-to-1 care ratio and are looking for some fun activities to join in with over school holidays.
Individuals need to be dropped off at the designated start point for each activity (this is usually The FSWA Hub at 80 Landsdale Road in Darch) and collected afterwards. Any transport during the day is provided by FSWA. Most activities take place during the day, but we also get out and have some awesome outings at night. 
Some of our favourite things to do include TimeZone, ice skating, baking and craft and the drive in cinema. Sometimes FSWA will provide lunch or dinner, but otherwise you’ll need to bring your own, or there’s always an opportunity to purchase something too! 
FSWA can offer different payment options tailored to suit you – Whether you are an existing FSWA client, you share or self manage your funding, or you want to pay for service – Contact us for an individualised quote!
