Let’s Link means fun – day and night!

Let’s Link is HDRC Services’ program of daytime leisure and recreational activities and evening outings for people living with a disability.

Available in the Port Macquarie, Hastings and Camden Haven areas, Let’s Link is a great way for clients to engage socially with their peers and build friendships and networks in the wider community. For a low cost, clients can enjoy:

  • REGULAR leisure and recreational activities, including Ten-Pin Bowling and Putt Putt Golf, visits to local attractions such as Sea Acres and Billabong Park, plus boating, whale watching, fishing, canoeing, surfing, or swimming (weather permitting).

  • AFTER HOURS and weekend activities of the client’s choice.

  • TRANSPORT arranged to the venue and safely back home for some activities.

  • SUPPORTED in small groups (a staff-client ratio of 1:4) or individually (self-funded packages) by trained staff, support workers and volunteers.

    Let’s Link offers individual empowerment, independence and choice for people living with a disability: It’s another example of our person-centred care.

    The program is supported by government and community funding, however we require a small contribution to help cover the cost of the outing.

    Let’s Link is supported by fully qualified staff and support workers with many years of hands-on experience in person-centred care.

    We will always try to meet any special needs: discuss your requirements with a staff member or your loved one’s support worker. They’re always ready to help.

    And, if you’d like to suggest a Let’s Link activity, we’d love to hear it!


  • Cost of meals and community activities

    Community-based recreational, leisure and social activities – along with any meals provided during the outing – may incur a cost. You will be advised in advance of any cost associated with an activity being planned.


  • Support from trained volunteers

    Volunteers are essential to not-for-profit organisations like HDRC Services. Our volunteers are special people who are fully vetted and trained to support our staff in running our programs.

    If you’d like to become a volunteer we’d love to hear from you. Please contact our Manager of Disability Services, Ms Joanne Redfern on 6584 1153.


  • Funding support from the government and the community

    Most activities will require small service charge and meals are not included. The community cost for activities and outings will normally be charged. You will be advised of the cost as part of the planning.

    No-one will be excluded from activities or social evenings because they are unable to pay the full amount. Please discuss with our staff.


  • Funding support from the government and the community

    HDRC Services’ programs are funded though State Government agencies and programs. To attend our programs or access services, clients must meet government criteria and guidelines.

    For more information or to discuss eligibility criteria, please contact our Intake Coordinator on 6584 1153.

    In addition, we actively seek funding from community groups, businesses and individuals to support new services and activities.

    We are grateful for the support of our sponsors.

    Our donations page will be live in the near future.
