THE STEPS charity recently announced the launch of its Pathways Project, helping young people with a disability learn lifelong skills over a period of 12 months.

Based in Caloundra, the project aims to teach them how to live independently and make decisions about the way they want to live.

IBN Direct recently hosted its annual charity golf day and raised funds for STEPS Charity and the Pathways Project as one of the nominated causes for the day.

More than 80 participants helped raise $5000 for the charity.

IBN Direct's chief operating officer Fiona Roberts said STEPS was a worthy cause close to staff hearts.

"We've worked with STEPS and have seen the fantastic work they do first-hand," she said.

"We love what they do and have so much admiration for the whole team.

"We are more than happy to support their latest project that will give people with a disability opportunities to learn new skills and to live independently."

STEPS Group Australia executive officer Stuart Coward thanked IBN for its generosity and reiterated the difference the college will make to the lives of Australians living with a disability.

"We're extremely thankful to IBN Direct and everyone who participated in the charity golf day for their support," he said.

"This project will have a huge impact, creating new opportunities that have not been offered anywhere in Australia before."
