Building relationships that make the difference

Who we are

Directions was established in 1994 and has been providing a wide variety of support services since then across the metropolitan area.

We pride ourselves on providing relationship-based support that enables people to dream big and achieve their desired goals. We recognise that support is not limited to the person with disability and we work flexibly and innovatively with families, strengthening the entire unit.

Directions supports people who have access to their own funding through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and through block funding in areas not yet covered by NDIS.

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.
