What we do
Yooralla provides a wide range of tailored, flexible and quality services for people with disability of all ages and needs, as well as carers.
Yooralla’s Support Coordination service links adults and children with disability with the right providers to meet their needs. We support you to understand and implement your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan. Our multidisciplinary approach means we provide assistance to source providers, coordinate a range of supports, build on informal supports, resolve points of crisis, and develop resilience in your own network and community. Our team is comprised of people with extensive disability services training.
Assistance with Daily Living
We provide Assistance with Daily Living for children and adults with disability. We provide one-on-one support, seven days a week, assisting you to live the life you choose. This can cover anything – getting ready for your day, household chores, food preparation, getting out and about in the community, enjoying social activities, getting to work or an appointment.
Community Hubs and Supports
Yooralla’s Community Hubs and Supports provides day services to young people and adults with disability to support a range of lifestyle skills and to promote choice and independence. Support is planned to complement your existing informal supports – such as family and friends – and to maximise your community participation opportunities.
