In-home and Community Supports
Our In-Home and Community Support Service supports children and adults with disability to develop skills and build independence to live the life they choose.
Our service is all about supporting you to increase your independence and reach your full potential. Supports offered might include assistance for you to be able to take part in social activities, support to attend appointments or simply requiring support at your home.
We can offer supports both in home and in the community, allowing you the flexibility and choice of individual supports you receive, with activities such as personal care, social outings, transport, shopping, doctor’s appointments and cooking.
