Disability Support Services

Care Goondiwindi provides services and supports to people with a disability and their carers/families. We understand that each person is unique and has their own skills, dreams and goals and our goal is to assist people with a disability and their families make those dreams and goals a reality. At Care we offer the following programs:

Respite Services – assist primary carers of people with disabilities aged 0 – 65 years in the reduction and management of stress and anxiety often associated with the care of a person with a disability. We offer short term breaks to carers by providing a flexible service tailored to meet the needs of each individual and family.

Post Schools Service – aims to provide young people with support to transition from school into adult life. This package is tailored to the individuals need and can include support from money management, lifestyle skills, independent living and recreation.

School Holiday Programs – Care provides a holiday activity program for all school aged children who are registered and eligible through Disability Services. These programs change each holidays and often include day trips.

Emergency Support – Care is able to apply for funding through Commonwealth Carer Respite Centre on behalf of the individual and family to get extra support for emergency situations that arise. Sometimes unexpected circumstances happen and support can be organised quickly and as needed.

Social Group  – Our Social Group meets for shows, events, dinners or lunches. This provides young people with an opportunity to network in their community and make connections and friendships. You must be aged 17 years and up to attend Social Group events.

Individualised Packages – we have the capacity to support people with a disability and their families in a way that offers truly individual and flexible support. Care has an experienced team of Support Workers who support clients to develop and participate in the local community.

Privately Funded Respite – Care Goondiwindi has Support Workers available to provide support for a fee. Contact the Coordinator for fees and arrangement details.
