If you wish to join in on a regular social activity, or have a special interest in gardening, woodwork, music, arts, or handicrafts, our social groups are a great solution. Our social groups are a way for like-minded people to get together regularly and engage in activities of interest. More importantly, they are a way to meet new people and build meaningful social connections.  

Our group social outings and bus trips to locations across South East Queensland are a great way to get out and explore, as well as meet people and build connections with others. We have a regular schedule of fun and exciting outings ranging from shopping and movies, to concerts and our very popular scenic bus tours, and provide a mix of smaller and larger group sizes to cater for different preferences.



Our rich and diverse schedule of activities includes:

  • Health and fitness programs, such as our popular exercise physiology classes at Balmoral Uniting Community Centre
  • Social groups and outings
  • Technology training, including learning to use your mobile device or iPad
  • Arts and crafts
  • Music and dance
  • Cultural celebrations.

Depending on which centre you choose to attend, activities are available for a full day, half day, or even on an hourly basis if you have a specific activity you wish to participate in.

Comprehensive home and community support

Everything you need in one place

With our comprehensive suite of home and community support services all in the one place, it’s easy to access and organize the support you need with Wesley Mission Queensland. With a strong connection to the Uniting Church of Queensland and a 20 year history of providing support to those living with disabilities, it’s not hard to work out why more and more people are choosing us to be their NDIS home and community support provider. 

If you’ve been receiving NDIS home support elsewhere, you’ll be familiar with how much you or your Support Coordinator needs to do just to arrange, organize and keep track of your supports.

At Wesley Mission Queensland, our Care Leaders go above and beyond to provide a high level of case management support. That way, you can focus on your goals, not on managing your supports. 

More time to focus on your goals

Your choice of one or more support workers

Everyone’s unique. Some people enjoy interacting with a small team of support workers. Others prefer the consistency of a single support worker. With Wesley Mission Queensland disability home support, it’s your choice. 

Let us help you reach your goals.
