Dallas is in receipt of a Community Participation Day Program and moved to Coffs Harbour in January of 2015 from Tamworth.  He spoke at that time of being a part of a service that was centre based and where he sat inside all day. He said he chose R&R Disability Services because it “was the first one I looked at and I liked it.  I have been able to plan what I wanted to do with the staff as I already had some idea of what I wanted to do.  If I want to do something that costs a bit more money then I just take it out of my own money.”

Dallas also identified the following as being really important to him:

  • “to learn independence
  • To make friends/ buddies
  • To run for council
  • To make a movie
  • To compose and play music.”

To date Dallas has made the following progress towards his goals:

  • Is still making progress with the locals around town, he is starting to develop connections in the community
  • Has joined the Local Access Committee and Coffs Coast Regional Disability Association committee.
  • Is working on his play, introducing the characters in his book and preparing music for a song he has written.
  • Is making friends.

When asked what Dallas most enjoyed about being a member of R&R he replied, “Joining in with the groups and professional writing.”

  • “R&R gave me my first real opportunity to work in a new industry following my career change. I value the opportunity that you extended, the way in which everyone at R&R including Admin, Coordinators and fellow Support Workers welcomed the new greenhorn and the valuable experience gained. ”

    “Wonderful organisation doing some great programs and initiatives.”

    “Great place to work with awesome staff and clients keep up the good work”

    “I am very grateful and blessed that I have been part of a wonderful service during my time at R&R Disability Services.”

    Participant Feedback

  • I’m emailing today to tell you how great my support worker is; not only is he very patient, helpful and quick-thinking, but he’s also the most friendly worker I’ve had to date. Whenever I’m not feeling my best, he seems to see that and not push me to do things that I’d otherwise be willing to do, however when I am feeling able to do things, he encourages me to do it myself, he teaches me how to do it if I’m not understanding, or congratulates me when I do it by myself.
