Commencement with the Transition from School Program can begin once your Funding Package is processed and accepted. Simply connect with Lifebridge when you’re ready to begin thinking about your next steps.

The Transition from School Program is designed to ensure your transition into Lifebridge is smooth and that you are supported along the way.

Transitional placements are only open to a person with a disability and who will be eligible for their own individual funded package.

What our clients have to say

“I have been attending Active Ninjas for the last 4 months. Go-karting was my favourite. The Support Workers are awesome, they are all ‘dags’! I have fun attending the outings. One word to describe the Active Ninja group – AWESOMENESS! In the future I would like to attend Movieworld, Timezone and Go-Karting again”.
