CASS Centre Based Day Programs support the ongoing development of each person through the provision of individually tailored opportunities. Our programs assist people with disability from CALD (culturally and linguistically diverse) communities to develop the skills they need in order to increase their independence, participate as valued and active community members and achieve their personal goals.
