Vocational Programmes

Since 1981 the Mosgiel Abilities Resource Centre (MARC) has been offering Vocational Day Services to people with a disability.

These include: music, woodwork, pottery, craft, computers, walking, gym & fitness, swimming, cooking, gardening and young men’s and women’s groups.

MARC provides a variety of social and recreational activities, either at our base at 16 Green St Mosgiel or out in the wider Dunedin community.

People choose the activities they would like to participate in based on their interests, abilities and skills. Each person works with a  staff member to develop a Personal Plan that clearly identifies their individual goals.


MARC boasts a qualified (Level 3 and 4) and experienced team that have each spent a number of years working for the organisation, providing a quality and consistent experience for service users.
