Our Day Program 

Bayley House operates a comprehensive Day Program which provides support for over 175 adults with an intellectual disability. The activities and programs offered to people attending Bayley House are varied and cater for differences in interest, ability, age and support requirements.

We deliver a flexible and tailored service which provides each person with new experiences and the opportunity to develop skills, increase independence and participate as a valued and active member of the community.

The Day Program service takes a Person Centred approach to program delivery. Individuals identify their interests, determine the support they may require and establish personal goals to work towards. The outcomes achieved are very individual and have different meaning and value for each person.

An important element of the Day Program is our involvement in the local community. We have strong links with organisations, schools and businesses in the Bayside area and many are actively involved in providing services, supporting our programs or assisting those who attend Bayley House.
