The Skills To Enable People and CommunitieS (STEPS) Program is a Queensland-wide information and skills program for adults aged 18-65 years with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), including stroke, and their families and friends. 

The STEPS Program aims to improve community life for people with ABI and their families, by  connecting people together and fostering a sense of strength and ability. See the links below for more information about the STEPS Program.

Potential Unlimited

The Potential Unlimited program, developed by Outward Bound in partnership with STEPS and Acquired Brain Injury, offers a tailor-made experience for people who have an acquired brain injury. The objective is to instil a sense of acceptance and adjustment to life with an acquired brain injury, while also growing capacity in self-confidence, self-esteem, self-reliance, independence, and teamwork.

Previous Potential Unlimited experiences have included challenging activities such as canoeing, abseil, high ropes, environmental community service (tree planting), and summitting Mt. Wollumbin (Mt. Warning). Participants were challenged emotionally, physically developing resilience and confidence and discovering their untapped abilities and skills.

How can your STEPS Community help?

Jennifer has set the target for her challenge at $40,000 and she needs your help! STEPS friends and communities can help Jennifer reach her goal by signing up to Team PARF and joining the STEPS Team to raise money to fund places at Potential Unlimited.
