Nick has been attending programs run by The Disabiilty Trust for the past 13 years and says the best thing about them is "meeting new friends and socialising".

Nick has been able to undertake a lot more activities and has been able to do them on his own.

"I have made new friends who I see regularly without having to organise it for myself," he said.

"I also see some of my friends who I knew from school and have been able to catch up with them as well."

Nick also loves Thursday night social group and Friday night Ragers at The Disability Trust.

The Trust provides a wide range of activities and supports for people who want to learn new skills while being active and with friends.

With a centrally located site in the heart of Campbelltown, the range of programs and support is expanding. Nick recently returned from a Trusted Travel holiday to Melbourne and has also been to the Blue Mountains and the Gold Coast. This has opened up another opportunity for Nick to expand his horizons and make new friends.

"I liked the bushwalks and the swimming most in the Blue Mountains and in the Gold Coast I loved the rides and the water slides," Nick said.

As well as the social groups, Brett Fairley from The Disability Trust says that Vacation Care and School Leaver Supports (SLES) are also expanding rapidly.

Participants can choose between a range of community and centre-based peer support activities and costs are supported by NDIS plans. To learn more contact Brett from The Disability Trust on 4631 5700.
