The Beehive is more than a busy activity centre, it is a place to meet and make new friends. Our recent survey of members revealed that one of the things they appreciate most about the Beehive was the chance to meet people of different nationalities and backgrounds.
We support active retirees/seniors aged over 55, persons who are eligible to receive the Disability Support Pension aged 25 or older, as well as the long term unemployed through the WFD program. All in a socially inclusive and supportive environment. We are sure you will find some activities that will appeal to you and some friendly faces to do them with.
We believe in keeping active, and leading a life that is packed with motivation and purpose. You can choose whatever day or days you want to come. Breakfast and a two-course lunch is served daily. Transportation to and from accommodation points across Waterloo, Redfern, Sydney City and East Sydney is provided in The Beehive bus.
The Beehive environment provides opportunities for people with low to moderate support needs to learn, develop and maintain a range of skills through educational, recreational and leisure activities.
Our services are regularly monitored by the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care (DADHC).
Industries has achieved Third Party Verification against the NSW Disability Service Standards.
We are also registered as a service provider to participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
Our services include:
Respite Care Relief
Transition to Work
Leisure and Educational Activities
Digital Inclusion Programs
The planning and service delivery of our programs is structured around the individual needs of people we support. Programs reflect personalised interests and goals, and participants are encouraged to make choices regarding the services they receive - this includes planning their own weekly timetables, and working parties within The Beehive warehouse and workshop.
We understand that people have varying levels and types of support needs and within all aspects of our service provision, we take into consideration the specific needs of indigenous people and culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
Our Day Options Programs are designed to increase the independence and skills that our people need to participate as valued and active members of the community.
