Simone has been involved in various Reclink Australia activities for the past two years, giving her a new lease on life.
Simone’s initial involvement was with the women’s swim program and since then she has participated in surfing, golf and tenpin bowling activities, as well as excursions and camps.
Last summer, Simone started dive training and now is a qualified open water scuba diver.
In May last year, Simone signed on as a Reclink Australia volunteer. She now coordinates the women’s swim program, assists with the dive program and has been a great support to other participants because of her enthusiasm and commitment.
Simone acknowledges that her connection with Reclink Australia has helped to keep her focused and positive.
Her involvement with Reclink Australia has enabled her to “stay on the right track” and is even providing options for her future and the opportunity to build new friendships and support networks that provide much needed stability.
Added to this, Simone has improved her fitness levels and now has a clear vision for her future.
Soon she will commence a beauty therapy course at TAFE and is currently employed in an aged care facility.
