Roads to Independence

A group of people in the Roads to Independence program. 

Roads to Independence (RTI) is part of Marriott Community Services and works in collaboration with adults with disabilities, their families and their community to provide a planned approach to building independence.

Situated in Moorabbin with easy access to public transport, RTI offers a base for individuals to start and end the day while accessing the local and wider community. Run by experienced and well-trained staff and supported by an extensive volunteer base, RTI has a vocational focus and assists individuals to work towards accessing the community independently through a tailored and flexible program.
