Supporting people with a disability and their carers 

Life is full of milestones, big and small. Starting school, moving out of home or making new friends can be big steps for anyone. Especially if you live with disability.
At the Benevolent Society, we’re one of the largest and most experienced disability providers, with an entire team of professionals to help you achieve your milestones and goals and live your best life. 

 

Support coordination

The NDIS is a big change for lots of people. Our specialist NDIS Support Coordinators get to know you and your needs and support you to make choices about your services. We’re here to help you navigate the system and manage your services and supports.

 

Physiotherapy

From movement and motor skills to staying active, our physiotherapists support people living with disability. Working closely with families and carers, they focus on removing barriers to getting active and moving for fun, function, fitness and health.

 

Positive Behaviour support

Positive Behaviour Support plans include assessment, setting goals for positive behaviour and integrating support needs. 

 

Psychology

Everyone has different mental health needs. Our psychologists support the mental health of people with disabilities and their families with customised mental health programs. From assessment to behaviour support, training and counselling, The Benevolent Society provides the tools to support people and enable them to safely access the community.

 

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapists (OTs) help you get on with the activities of everyday life. Through training, equipment and new ideas on managing your home and environment, OTs support people with disability to build coping skills, self care, manage their mobility, and connect with the community. 

 

Diet therapy and nutrition support 

Food isn’t just about nutrition - it’s key to how we live and connect. Our Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) support people with disability to manage problems with eating habits, weight, food intolerances, food issues and prevent or manage chronic disease.

 

Speech pathology

Imagine struggling to tell someone about your day? Speech Pathologists help people who have difficulty with communication, eating and drinking. From building social skills and no-fuss meal times to understanding language and saying words. We can also run group training for parents, teachers and other carers and support staff.
