Multicultural Disability Services Program

Who we are

Why we do what we do

Our vision is an inclusive community that values diversity, guarantees the human rights of

people with a disability and ensures that they:

  • Have equal opportunity and access to social and cultural events and activities in the community
  • Develop their capacity, skills and knowledge to make positive contributions to the
    community and thereby establish valued roles in the community
  • Enjoy healthy, enriching and meaningful relationships that embrace their own lifestyle choices
  • Are empowered to plan and make their own choices to improve their quality of life

 

What we do

  • Provide personal assistance to persons with a disability in their own home, e.g. assist with household tasks such as preparation of meals, cleaning, and other household help
  • Assist persons with disabilities to participate in community activities/events of their interests
  • Provide mentoring support to persons living with a disability
  • Provide culturally and linguistically appropriate support services to the person with a disability and their families/carers
  • Facilitate the development and maintenance of relationships with family, friends and service providers
  • Provide a broad range of therapeutic support such as continence consultations, OT, physiotherapy, psychological service, social Work, speech therapy etc. intended to, maintain or improve a person’s functional abilities
  • Provide live-in carers (co-resident) who provide a range of support to person with a disability to enable them to live as autonomously as possible
  • Provide respite care in community and centre-based settings
  • Provide transport in wheel-chair accessible vehicles

 

Our Disability Services Program supports and plans meaningful and achievable goals in the following key areas of an individuals life:

How we do it

The support coordinators and service facilitators work alongside individuals and their families to co-design and co-produce support plans based on their unique needs, goals, aspirations and dreams.

The person-centredplanning occurs in a supportive environment of the person with a disability and their family and carers. It is a holistic strength-based approach which offers hope; choice and control; andopportunities to fulfil their potential.

Our program values and recognises that a person with a disability and their families and carers are best placed to determine their needs. We respect their desire and capacity to self-direct their support plans and we facilitate the provision of supports accordingly.
