Welcome to SWARA!

SWARA provides a loving learning environment in which our participants are free to choose from a wide range of learning and life support skills. We are preparing to transition to NDIS, focusing on participant’s individual goals and pathways to achieve them.

SWARA’s collaborative culture has been sustained by the philosophy of ‘Loving Service in Action’.

Our philosophy has sustained SWARA for over 42 years; enabling SWARA to provide a reliable service for the Brisbane community. 

Support Our Learning Skills

SWARA Learning and Life Skills 

We provide choices for skill development to assist participants to achieve their goals and aspirations. Our activities provide a wide range of options to suit all abilities.

Our activities develop skills for independent living including: literacy, numeracy, domestic skills, baking, cooking, metal recycling, horticulture, and physical activities influencing social interaction, relationships and friendships, which contribute to community involvement.

The development of participants’ learning skills in literacy and numeracy are tailored to individual needs, enabling participants to progress at their own pace in order to achieve their potential. The support of volunteers and students provide a safe learning environment using computer programs which empower participants to embrace and understand the use of modern day technology.
