By using computers for activities like reading and writing documents, communicating with others, and finding useful information on the internet, the people who attend our ‘Community Choices Network’ are more able to handle a wider variety of tasks independently.

Pouches For Australia

About 12 million acres of Australian land burned in the recent bush fires, according to the Associated Press. This would equal approximately 20 per cent of the United Kingdom. A shocking one billion animals at least have died because of the devastation. The animal rescue collective campaign requested donations of a number of vital handmade items, including joey pouches, animal sweaters and possum boxes. The Animal Magic group at Community Choices Network were very happy to help and made some joey pouches for Australia.
