It was a pleasure to visit Vantage Point Community in Lilydale. It was lovely to join in and chat with the people, and I find it truly inspiring the work you do supporting our community.
What people have said about Vantage Point Community
This community has brought great joy to me.
I am an immigrant and have been very lonely. But since coming here I have learned to speak better English and have good Aussie mates. I have found a place where I can give back. I help in the shed and help to clean after. This makes me feel like I have value.

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for the food hampers. Last week I had to flee my home with my kids due to family violence. Now as I navigate through the separation/court etc the food hampers will be even more of a great help to me and my kids, so my sincere thanks. Also thanks to your team, they were so friendly and kind on Tuesday despite it raining.

Our daughter has had the absolute privilege to be part of the Vantage Point Community program. During her time in the program she has independently built strong relationships with other staff, learnt about responsibilities; following tasks; meeting deadlines and working with other peers. Despite having a disability, our daughter has always yearned to be a part of a working culture which gives her both a meaningful purpose and a feeling of being a valued and contributing member of society. The Community program has fulfilled our daughters dreams and we are thrilled that she has been given this incredible opportunity.
