What is Bridges?
Bridges offers community based services to people who have a disability and their families.
We are committed to providing individualised supports to all people who access our service with the aim that each person can achieve the best life possible for them. When we start working with someone, we spend a long time talking with them and their family to understand what they want out of life and how we can help them achieve that. Our clients are involved in all stages of the process, including choosing their support team and taking the lead role in all planning meetings. The service plans that are developed are never set in stone and can always be changed as needed.
We offer a flexible range of services including:
personal support for daily living
support to establish independent living
overnight and weekend support
planning and coordination
flexible funding plans
shared and self-managed care
Who is Bridges for?
Bridges supports people with disability. The program provides services to all people who are eligible to receive funding from Disabilities Service Commission. Where such funding is not available, an individual may pay for the service privately.
