We are a leaders in best practice with over 65 years of experience. We practice Person Centred Active Support to improve quality of life, ensuring engagement and participation in all aspects of support. Our person centred active services aim to enable people to gain control over their lives, increase independence and be included as a valued member of their community.
We participated in a long-term research project with La Trobe University to implement and monitor our success in providing Person Centred Active Support to people with disabilities.
