Building relationships that make the difference

Who we are

Directions was established in 1994 as an organisation that recognised the need for the whole family of a person with disability to be valued and supported.

Initially Directions supported 10 people with disability and their families.  Directions now provides relationship-based, personalised and individually tailored support to people from the Gascoyne Region , across Perth Metro, south to the Peel Region and growing every day.

Directions has an excellent reputation for providing high quality support that is flexible, creative and inclusive.  Our staff and volunteers are an exceptional group of people who build strong relationships with the people that we support and their families, and thrive on sharing their lives.

We provide opportunities for people to participate in family and community activities of their choice that: encourage lifelong learning; lead to increased independence; promote friendships; and enable people to actively contribute to their community.  In groups or individually, we support people to achieve their aspirations and dreams, and get the very best out of life.
