Disability support

Supporting you to live your life in ways you choose

At UnitingCare Community, we work in partnership with you, your family and support network to create opportunities, promote individual choice and empower you to imagine and achieve personally meaningful lives.

We aspire to enable you to:

  • Increase community presence in your local area.
  • Expand community participation through deepened relationships and friendships.
  • Have valued roles and increase the ways you can contribute to your community.
  • Have choice and control.
  • Contribute your unique gifts.

We do this through personally tailored planning and service design.

Shared Stories

On 10 December 2015, support workers, lead practitioners, the leadership team and members of the executive came together for our very first Support Workers Symposium.  This event created an opportunity for people we support to share their personal stories of living full lives unique to them and what it takes to provide support that enable the pursuit of dreams and aspirations.

We heard stories that demonstrated the five valued experiences that reflect our service delivery model:  choice and control, presence, participation, valued roles and contribution.
