Community Disability Services

Encouraging Community Participation

At St. Judes, we take pride in delivering a range of personalised disability housing and community services across Perth and WA’s South-West.

Our Approach

At St. Judes, we have rejected the traditional cookie-cutter approach; we recognise our valued members as individuals, with unique strengths and abilities.

Our team of qualified community disability service professionals take the time to get to know our members and will identify activities and devise a plan which best suits their needs.

Our disability community services are designed to provide customised support to suit the individual’s social needs, to enable the pursuit of social and recreational activities in the wider community. Our approach to community services for adults with disability is to build on the existing personal strengths of the individual and support existing community access strategies, such as the use of public transport, if that is the individual’s current way of accessing the community.

This approach allows our clients to retain existing skills, while supporting their resources to stretch towards cultivating positive outcomes aligned to their individual support plan. The programmes range from providing support to enable individuals to independently engage in the community with various levels of intensity, through to skills development in the community, or at our learning and recreation centre.

NDIS Participants Have More Control

We offer NDIS participants choice, giving them more control over their personal development and lifestyle.

Individuals choose their own activities within general categories such as mentoring, peer-matching, sport, healthy living, culture, the arts, recreational activities, educational support, volunteering and pre-employment training and support.

Our Learning & Recreation Centre

St. Jude’s offers a learning and recreation centre located in Bellevue which includes: a men’s shed, community garden, sensory room, computer and cooking classes and much more. Through the centre we offer Independent Skills Development Programmes, covering budgeting, meal planning, preparation and use of public transport. These programmes are run by fully-trained disability service workers.
