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.
In preparation for the NDIS, UnitingCare Community are undertaking a number of significant readiness activities.
Achieving a full and inclusive life that is personally meaningful begins with a vision. We can support you to develop a vision of your desired future and plan the steps toward attaining it.
Supported living describes a range of support options that can assist you with day-to-day life.
Everybody needs time out. The opportunity to pursue things we love doing, whether they be joining an interest group, attending local events or an overseas holiday, bring balance and joy to life.
Having people in your life and being connected in community creates opportunities for friendships, building your network of supporters and ways to be an active member of your local community. There are unlimited ways you can participate and offer your gifts in your community.
Making sure you’re in control
Finding ways to contribute your skills and talents enable you to have purpose, make a difference and earn money. Employment services can assist you to find your path to finding work or running your own business.
We offer a range of supports to assist you, your family and supporters to be equipped for the best access.

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.
