ConnectAbility is a disability support organisation working to make life better for people with disabilities and their families. This includes supporting people with disabilities to live independently, assisting people to get involved in their local communities and providing employment support to help develop skills and experience needed for work.
We promote equal opportunities for people with disabilities through the provision of effective and high-quality disability support services in Lake Macquarie. We believe that all people, regardless of their disability or special need, have the right to enjoy all of life’s experiences and aim to deliver high-quality services promoting the full inclusion of people with disabilities.
What is the NDIS?
We work in partnership with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to encourage social and economic participation for those living with disabilities.
The NDIS is designed to meet the unique needs of people with disabilities who need support. The NDIS works with community service providers in Lake Macquarie to help people with disabilities live a more independent life.
Disability services in Lake Macquarie
ConnectAbility offers specialised services to those living with disabilities in Lake Macquarie who desire to live independently and be a part of their local community. We work with each individual, maintaining a close continuing relationship to identify resources that are essential for improving the quality of life.
All of our services are designed with inclusivity in mind. We want to identify potential barriers and work towards finding a solution to remove them. We work closely with the people we support as well as their families and carers to deliver services that are personalised to individual needs. Our support helps to enable the people we support to make their own choices about how they live.
Independent living and life skills
Most of us take the opportunities we have for granted regarding living arrangements, employment, transportation, social and recreational activities, and other aspects of everyday life. For many people with disabilities, social or physical limitations can often result in low expectations about the options people with disabilities have.
ConnectAbility will work with you to help you understand your goals and support you and your family or carers to develop the skills needed to build confidence and independence in your daily life.
We can provide training and development across a range of life skills, including:
- Personal hygiene
- Maintaining cleanliness in your home
- Transport and travel
