THE Bridge Disability Support Service has kicked off its 51st year on a high note, launching a brand new facility in Springvale South in February.

The new headquarters at 69-71 Athol Road is located in a larger and more accessible building than the previous Noble Park facility,

It has accessible facilities, large activity rooms, on-site parking, fun outdoor areas and will allow more people and families to access services.

Acting chief executive Mary-Jane Stolp said the service was thrilled to be opening the new facility.

"The Bridge is very keen to respond to community needs and our eight local locations each do that very well in different ways," Mary Jane said.

The Bridge connects adults with a range of disabilities, allowing them to work in partnerships to set and achieve goals in the ways they choose.

It offers a range of community-based activities such as swimming, cooking, gardening, sailing, art, music, dance, carpentry, yoga, theatre, sailing, computers and independent travel.

The Bridge also offers an employment training service for people who are able to pursue paid work.

It is always looking for new volunteers to spend four-six hours a week working as Activity Assistants.
