Sunshine Coast Disability Services
We are a small organization, registered and audited by the NDIS, supporting and delivering the highest quality of care to the disability sector. Honoured to be in a position that provides comfort and peace of mind to both participants and primary caregivers, we aim to maintain the level of care, safety and commitment that we have been offering for years while continuously enhancing our services to remain as one of the top providers of NDIS audited care in Sunshine Coast.
To ensure that our professional duty of care stays top level, we only engage with high skilled disability support workers, aged care and community caregivers. We require an NDIS Clearance, workers’ screening and at least Cert III qualifications for them to meet risk assessment roles. Most support workers even have decades of life experience caring for members of their own family, which essentially means that they have a true understanding of the most important needs of both the participant and the primary carer.
What sets us apart is our passion for empowering people not only to achieve their goals and aspirations but to also reach their full potential no matter what situation they are in. We believe that all participants should be treated with respect and dignity while creating a welcoming, safe and nurturing environment for them. Throughout the years of striving for excellence, we have always treated our profession as an opportunity to make a visible and measurable impact on the lives of people with disability.
We offer not just a service. Sunshine Coast Disability Services has a full understanding of the care required and a personal connection to the industry. We believe that all human beings should be treated as equal members of society. And with the same rights and privileges as others.
We are committed to providing excellent personal service. Treating and recognising each person as an individual, we will always readily tailor our services to meet the needs and desires of every participant. Through professional care and respect, we will help each individual in discovering their real capabilities so they can reach their full potential within their NDIS plan goals.
Our vision is to create a better quality of life for members of the disability sector. Through first-rate care and consistently developing disability services, we will be the #1 NDIS registered and audited provider of disability care in the Sunshine Coast region.
