Stepping into the Future is your opportunity to shape the Day Options programs of the future, for the benefit of your loved ones who live with disability.
Stepping into the Future is an important organisational-wide project – driven by clients, their families and carers, as well as our staff – to create a Day Options program that is individualised and tailored for participants, to make sure we are meeting their needs.
Novita’s commitment to quality and responsive services and supports gives us a unique opportunity to ensure our clients, and particularly our Day Options participants and their families and carers, are at the forefront of new and innovative programs that support them to achieve their life goals.
What are ‘Day Options’?
Day Options is a group program aimed at supporting adults living with disability through meaningful, fun and inclusive activities – such as arts and crafts, cooking, communication, and community visits – to build skills and achieve individual goals.
Our Day Options programs are delivered from Novita and scosa hubs throughout South Australia by professional, highly-skilled and caring staff members dedicated to supporting participants to lead fulfilling lives and achieve their goals.
Everything we do at Novita and scosa is aimed at ensuring people living with disability and their families are achieving their goals.
Creating our Vision for the future
Our vision for Day Options is to create a thriving program of community activities that meet the needs and goals of each individual participant while also promoting inclusion, friendship and a sense of community.
Where participants’ goals are met, where they have choice and control, where friends are made, and where life is for living.
Get involved in bringing the vision to life
Stepping into the Future relies on the skills, knowledge and experience of our Day Options participants, families and carers – supported by our experienced and professional Novita and scosa staff. This is your opportunity to have genuine and direct involvement in designing and implementing the Day Options programs of the future, for the benefit of your loved ones living with disability.
As part of the Stepping into the Future process, participants and their families and carers will have ongoing opportunities to have a say through attending meetings, joining focus and project groups, completing surveys, and making submissions about the shape of our Day Options programs in the future.
We will be in touch when opportunities arise for you to get directly involved in the Stepping into the Future process. In the meantime, if you would like to register your interest in becoming involved, or you already have some thoughts and ideas, you can complete the Stepping into the Future online registration form.
This website will also be regularly updated with information about opportunities to get involved in the project, and how you can have your say.
The success of the Stepping into the Future project and its outcomes will depend on your thoughts, your opinions, and your input.
