Able clients cooking up a storm in the community

YAP clients at the cooking program
3 October 2018

Able Australia’s Young Adult Program (YAP) is a popular day service where clients aged between 18-30 can build positive relationships with each other and the community, as well as increase their independence and learn important life skills.

A key part of the Young Adult Program is its commitment to local community involvement, just recently partnering with TasTafe to share learning experiences and connecting with other Able programs to create the best experiences for our clients.

This month, YAP connected with the Northern Suburbs Community Centre (NSCC) to begin a new cooking program.

Once a week, clients and staff make their way to the NSCC to partake in a free public cooking lesson. YAP clients and members of the community cook together to produce healthy meals that are designed to suit everyone’s palates.

In recent weeks clients have enjoyed cooking a number of dishes, from curries to Chow Mein. Everyone is given the opportunity to learn new skills, socialise and, of course, eat.

This program is already set to continue for the rest of the year. We’re looking forward to seeing what the group cooks up next!
