My Supports, South Australia, is making a difference with Developmental Education. Developmental Educators (DE’s) adopt a holistic, strengths-based and person-centred approach and work from a human rights framework.
The My Supports market day was held on Friday, December 1, at the My supports Head Office in celebration of International Day for People with Disability. Everyone enjoyed a free sausage sizzle lunch and raffles. It was a lovely day!
Thank you all for your contributions to the success of My Supports as we work in the new world of the NDIS. We now operate in five Australian states (WA, SA, NSW, VIC & QLD) with some 800 clients and over 300 active staff.
Earlier in the year, our lovely Head Office receptionist, Marie, nominated Jim and My Supports for a WA Pinnacles Business Award — the “Emerging Business Excellence Award”. Last month we got the call that we are a finalist for this award!
Frank is a Support Worker at My Supports in WA, and lives the experience of disability being an amputee. He's an awesome mentor for our younger male clients, and supports many clients getting them involved in Martial Arts and putting on 4WD Trips!
My Supports has launched its first Neighbourhood Team in Toowoomba. I have been meeting with participants, LAC's and provider's in the area "getting the lay of the land", and I’m already helping one NDIS participant kick start their NDIS plan.
We are proud to have become a recognised provider in the delivery of supports within the new NDIS era. Since registering with the NDIS in 2014, we have grown as a peer-led provider and now support 664 clients around Australia, with 238 My Supports staff across the country.
