Lamp Inc aims to promote personal independence, social wellbeing and community inclusion for all consumers. The independent living program provides services to consumers in their own homes, within the general community and at our local support centres.
The Independent Living Program workers provide support to consumers with tasks such as assistance with appointments, shopping, advocacy, living skills, budgeting and liaisons with mental health services. The aim of the support program is to enable consumers to live more independently and with confidence within the community.
Our vision is to provide young people in the community with a safe and friendly environment to interact with others and develop life skills. The youth program strives to embrace early intervention and convey information to the community about mental health relating to youth.
