About ROPE

About Rope

At ROPE, we provide support services to people living with intellectual disabilities.

We empower personal development through provision of information, education and life skills training. Our in centre and community-based programs educate and encourage participants to develop life skills, including; computer skills, social and interpersonal skills, travel and independent living skills.

We provide a focused service where each persons unique skills, abilities, talents and interests are recognised and fostered in an atmosphere of family and friendship.  We are a non-profit organisation and we work to provide choices and opportunities to meet the clients and their family’s aspirations for the most fulfilling life possible.


ROPE also provides free support to those in the community who are in need through a recycling program. ROPE participants collect and recycle bottles and cans, and then discuss as a group who we would like to donate the funds raised to. Last year we donated to the Breakfast Club, this year we are doing Meals on Wheels deliveries and helping with Meals on Wheels’ recycling program to help them to raise funds for their organisation.
