Welcome to EPIK

The EPIK program is a great way to help children up to 16 years of age work towards achieving goals in a safe and fun environment that encourages socializing and personal growth.

EPIK services offer a range of activities, both in their purpose-built centre and in the community, that can help children develop a range of skills and experiences.

These activities could include learning a new skill, exploring a new hobby, and having fun with peers.

EPIK also provides a social atmosphere for children to form relationships, build their confidence, and make positive connections with their peers.

How would I or my child join EPIK?
Every participant needs to meet NDIS and SAFC requirements before we would be able to provide services. Once you initiate a conversation with our coordination team, we will then guide you through the process and invite you for a tour where we could discuss further. The on boarding process usually takes up to 2 weeks.
What is the difference between EPIK and Forge Programs?
Both programs provide support to NDIS registered participants. EPIK is for school aged children starting from 5 years while Forge is specifically designed for young adults aged up to 25 years of age.

What is the difference between Community Access and Centre Based?
Our Community Access program offers a range of activities and experiences for our participants while out in the community. Community Access encourages our participants to get out and about, be active, and to socialise with their peers. With choices of paid and free activities, such as trampolining centres or public water parks respectively, there is always something exciting to do or somewhere new to explore with EPIK’s Community Access Program.
Our Centre Based Program caters to the creativity within each one of our participants. We encourage our participants to learn a new skill, discover a new passion, and to work together to achieve great things. With a range of arts and crafts activities, musical instruments to play, or dishes to make in our cooking program, staying in for the day doesn’t mean we won’t have fun.
