LEAP into Life – Recreation Consultancy Service

LEAP into life is a recreational consultancy service that connects people living with a disability or mental health issues with recreational activities.
Through information, planning and introduction services, we provide the practical assistance required to remove many of the traditional barriers to participation.
Start the journey towards an active, healthy and connected life.

We Believe

Fun – Having fun improves quality of life, health and general wellbeing. We believe there should be more fun in every day. We love to see friendships develop through active participation and being in good company.

For everybody –We believe people of all abilities should have equal access to health and fitness activities. We can operate in any community across the wider Adelaide metropolitan area where there is a YMCA facility.

Community – We are always part of the wider community, never shut off or isolated. It is our hope to motivate people with disabilities to participate and exercise their independence and choices in a supportive, social environment that builds self-esteem.

Affordable – Our services can be accessed through your NDIS plan. Ask your planner to include LEAP takers as a Day Options program on a weekly basis.

Flexible – Everyone is different and we love that. We embrace individuality and we will help you to develop skills at your pace and at in a way that works for you.


This service can be mapped to Individual Skills Development or Life Transition Planning activities in your NDIS plan. We can customise a program to suit your needs with the level of service and length of our involvement based on your goals.

Personal Recreation Plan – We work with you to develop a personalised recreation plan that includes activities of your choice. Support is provided by way of connections, information, regular phone contact and support at the activity.

Recreation Information Service – Individual or referring persons can request information via email or over the phone. We’ll reply with a letter outlining available programs and activities in your local community.

To access the service a Service Request Form must be completed and sent back. Alternatively a referral can be completed over the phone. Pricing is in line with the NDIS price guide, under the category ‘Increased Social and Community Participation’.
