Disability

2020-21 has been a year of significant growth for our disability services across northern NSW and southeast QLD. We are proud of our client outcomes and what our teams have achieved as we adapted and pivoted to support over 555 people across a range of NDIS services. Innovation and adaptability were key attributes to the success of our services this year. We applied a different approach to comply with COVID-19 restrictions whilst continuing to provide necessary supports. We want to extend a big thank you to all of our teams, as their commitment and dedication allowed us to maintain a quality and safe service for our clients. Disability Assisted Living This year we expanded our Assisted Living portfolio in southeast QLD with the addition of three new Supported Independent Living (SIL) properties on the Gold Coast and an exciting new partnership

Introducing our Empower! Program In August 2020, we proudly launched a reimagined program of activities for people living with disabilities called Empower! The Empower! program includes our centre-based services in Casino and Tweed Heads, in-home support services, and short-term accommodation (STA) services. The Empower! program provides a wide range of fun and educational activities focusing on building skills and experience in independence and daily living. Available individually or in a small group setting, program choices can be delivered in-home, out and about in the community, at one of our Empower! centres or during STA stays. In addition to our two STA properties in Casino, Momentum Collective offers Community STA. We support clients to enjoy a group weekend away in a community setting. The program puts the needs of participants first and tailors activities to the goals and aspirations of individuals. Our Tweed Heads Empower team moved into their new home at Corporation Circuit, featuring more space for our clients with a kitchen and art therapy area for skill-building activities. In Casino, the Empower team continued to grow our centre-based services. We increased the variety of our programs and achieved outstanding results for our clients. Most significantly, we have expanded the reach of our Empower services in Grafton and Southeast QLD, providing in-home support to over 100 new clients. We are excited to continue to grow in these regions. Support Coordination Support Coordination has seen significant growth throughout the year, supporting over 288 NDIS participants to access and coordinate services. With the introduction of two new local and highly skilled Support Coordinators in Grafton and Gold Coast, this service continues to build a network of excellent resources and offer our clients a diverse range of options and supports in their local communities.

Another huge achievement was opening a 10 unit SDA property in Loganlea, built by Adapt Housing. As the chosen supported living provider, Momentum Collective provides customised 24/7 support and care for residents to live their best lives within the community. Our footprint continues to expand, and we are excited for what’s to come in 2021-22.
