About the event

Formerly known as the ‘Housing series’, this is a session in our monthly ‘Home and Living series’ which began in late 2023. Each month there is a different focus with some guest speakers. Keep an eye out for further workshops in the series.    

Janice’s son, Lincoln, moved out of home in June 2022. Janice will talk about some of the things that were put in place so Lincoln could be as independent as possible as soon as he moved out.  

Participants will gain knowledge about:

  • Creating a Personal Assistant role
  • Planning and organising – how to sync your lives
  • Building a routine before the move out of home
