Life in lockdown has been particularly hard for some of the residents in Dundaloo homes - they have missed seeing their friends and attending all the usual day services.
So, Dundaloo support workers have been assisting people in their own homes to create wonderful works of art in the Dundaloo Challenge. It helps keep minds and bodies active and they all like a bit of a competition.
All the artworks are available to see from Monday afternoon, June 15 at the Dundaloo Café in the Wingham Plaza.
Dundaloo Support Services (DSS) is a disability service based in the Manning Valley, Great Lakes and Gloucester areas. It support individuals and their families in the Manning Valley and the Forster, Great Lakes and Gloucester towns and surrounds.
The Dundaloo Foundation Ltd was established in 1953 by local families, initially to provide schooling for children and young people with an intellectual disability.
Today, DSS operates seven group homes in the Manning area , providing accommodation and individualised support for up to 36 men and women.
It was chosen by the parents who started the organisation way back in 1953 and comes from the Biripi word meaning A good place
