Mudgee Disability Support Service aims to maximise life's opportunities for persons with a disability by providing support, training and guided assistance for them to meet their individual goals and aspirations.
We are a not-for-profit professional and flexible organisation covering the Mid-Western area including Mudgee, Gulgong, Kandos that is ready for the exciting changes that we face as the Australian disability sector undergoes significant changes.
MDSS works with the community to continuously explore opportunities to help each person achieve their personal goals and to live independent and successful lives. We aim to empower people to make their own decisions and exercise their highest level of self-determination with support from their family and community networks.
A Person Centred Plan (PCP) is developed after meeting with the client and their family and/or advocate which is designed specifically with the clients wants and needs in mind. This plan is re-assessed regularly and new goals may be set or extended depending on the outcome of the assessment.
Mudgee Disability Support Service clients have the opportunity to work one-on-one with our person centred team to achieve their goals and develop new skills at their own pace.
Our staff are highly motivated, extensively trained and committed to meeting the needs of each and every client.
'Every client has a voice - every client has a choice'
Leaving Care is generally designed for individuals that are transitioning from parental responsibility of the Minister for Community Services to living as independently as possible.
This support is tailored to the individual needs of the Clients and provides access to:
- accommodation support
- skill development and vocational opportunities
- opportunities for social and community participation
The MDSS Group Home was established in 2004 and originally utilised rental premises. In 2007 MDSS received funding to build their own purpose built Group Home which accommodates up to 5 Clients.
The Group Home started off as a Children's Group Home, but evolved into an Adult's Group Home as the years progressed.
To have placement in our Group Home, you must be referred by ADHC.
Funding of the Group Home is provided by ADHC.
