Inclusion Plus runs activities for several groups during the school term that are active on the Coast. Groups are comprised of young people aged 6 to 21 years.
These Klubs have been developed to help establish positive social networks between young people with a disability and their local communities, as well as giving families a break. The Klubs participate in community based activities such as Movies, Ten Pin Bowling, Arts, Dancing, Movies, Fishing, Canoeing, Bush Walking & other outdoor activities. Typically group activities commence at 9am and end at 3pm on the weekend.
