Established in 1918, Yooralla is one of Australia’s largest and most proactive organisations working to support people with disability to live independent and fulfilling lives. Yooralla values the right of every person, irrespective of age, gender, financial circumstance or level of disability, to access high-quality services that will allow them to achieve their goals.
Yooralla's services are developed in partnership with people with disability and in many cases, their families and carers. We provide essential services for people of all ages and disability, regardless of whether a person is born with or acquires a disability as the result of accident, ill health or age.
Our services cover every aspect of living, both practical and aspirational. We provide a range of accommodation alternatives, respite, in-home support, therapy, attendant care, specialised equipment, employment, recreation, information, education and training, and practical skills for daily living.
We also provide a career pathway for our employees. Today, more than 1800 people throughout Victoria work for Yooralla, in a variety of settings and with a wide range of skills.
Our vision is to 'A world where people with disability are equal citizens' and our mission is to provide quality, sustainable and flexible services that uphold human rights and create opportunities, empowering individuals to live the life they choose.'
As a specialist service provider, Yooralla's every effort is dedicated to ensuring the human rights of all people with disability are upheld in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
