How can Yooralla support me?

Yooralla can support your NDIS goals with our wide range of tailored, flexible and quality services. 

We are a disability specialist and we know the NDIS – we have been supporting participants from the beginning of the NDIS. We support people with disability of all ages and needs, and have provided supports to people with disability for 100 years (since 1918).

What I’m looking for

I want to get out and about in my local community

Yooralla’s Community Hubs and Supports provide day services to young people and adults with disability to support a range of lifestyle skills and to promote choice and independence. Support is offered on a long-term basis and is planned to complement your existing informal supports – such as family and friends – and to maximise your community participation opportunities.

Yooralla provides Assistance with Daily Living for people with disability. We provide one-on-one support, seven days a week, assisting you to live the life you choose. This can cover getting ready for your day, getting out and about in the community, enjoying social activities, getting to work or an appointment.

I need therapy

Our flexible and qualified Therapy team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists and psychologists can work with you to you to improve your communication or increase mobility and engagement in everyday activities.

I need somewhere to live, or to stay for a little while

Yooralla provides many supported independent living accommodation options for adults with disability, from group style houses to individual accommodation in self-contained flats. With a strong commitment to customer wellbeing and safeguards, we can support you with daily personal activities and participation in community life.

We also provide tailored short-term accommodation (respite) experiences and the chance for people with disability to experience living away from home, while also proving their carers to take a break from the daily routine.

I need help understanding and implementing my NDIS plan

Yooralla has developed a free guide to implementing your NDIS plan. The guide will help you understand what you need to do after you receive your NDIS plan so you can start using your NDIS supports.

Book in for a free one-on-one meeting with Yooralla once you receive your NDIS plan to make the most of it!

We also provide a Support Coordination service to link people with disability with the right providers for their needs, and to support you to understand and implement your NDIS plan.

I need support to prepare before my NDIS planning meeting

Yooralla has developed a free guide to help you prepare for your NDIS planning meeting, and it includes an activity planner so you can think about what supports you have now, your goals and what else you need.  

We are also holding a series of free pre-planning sessions across Melbourne. Book in for a pre-planning session to be prepared for your planning meeting.

I’d like to learn new things

Yooralla supports you to build everyday skills through our Life Skills program. By focusing on your own specific goals, we can support you to master the skills you need to achieve greater independence, confidence and control. Our training focuses on practical skills that you can use immediately and in the future, from handling money to travel training, meal preparation, personal presentation, independent living skills or literacy and numeracy.

Life skills programs are available through Yooralla’s Community Hubs.

We can also help you if you’d like to learn new job skills through our Job Skills & Employment Pathways service, to get you ready to get a job now or in the future.

I’d like to get a job now, or in the future

Yooralla supports people with disability to pursue their employment goals by providing job skills training and building employment pathways into supported and open employment. If you have employment related goals, Yooralla can support you to develop a plan that builds your capacity to gain meaningful work and earn a wage.

I want to have some fun

Yooralla specialises in providing Recreation services to people of all ages and disabilities. Activities can be fun, adventurous or relaxing; they can be group activities or they can support individual goals and pursuits; they may be day activities, a weekend camp, a week away or even longer.

Support is offered on a long-term basis and is planned to complement your existing informal supports – such as family and friends – and to maximise your community participation opportunities.

I need support with communication
