Compassion

ADDITIONAL NEEDS PROVISION

 


We believe God made everyone unique with different qualities and attributes. Every person created by God has inherent value and intrinsic beauty. At LifePoint we do our best to support individuals and families no matter what their circumstances and in particular we offer support to young people with developmental delay or additional needs. We have a sensory room that is available to use during all our church gatherings and is also available to be booked free of charge for use by individuals throughout daytime hours Monday - Friday. We offer a team of specially trained buddy’s that provide 1-1 care for your child, if needed, for our Sunday morning gathering.

Kidstop is a weekly group offering a caring environment for parents and pre-schoolers with diagnosed, or emergent, developmental delay issues. There is cake, coffee and a welcoming supportive team of helpers for adults as well as options of stimulating or relaxing room spaces for pre-schoolers. LifePoint Church partners with ELI PROJECT who host a family night once a month in The LifePoint Centre. Attended by many families from across the region. This offers a fun and friendly experience for parents with their children and teens who have additional needs. Autism aware certification LifePoint Church have key personnel trained to deal with people on the Autistic Spectrum.
