Established in 2018, Next Step Disability Services Pty Ltd (NSDS) provides a range of support services for adults with disability in Ballarat, Bendigo and surrounding areas. Originally established to provide a community hub, community access, personal skill development programs and personalised care for people living in Ballarat, NSDS has grown to support over 100 clients in regional Victoria. The rapid growth of our organisation in its first 12 months, is reflective of our focus on delivering high quality, person centred support.
More recently, we have expanded our services to ‘round the clock’ support for persons choosing to live in their own home. We are enthusiastic about the future possibilities for people to live as independently as possible in a supported independent living arrangement, and to position ourselves to meet this demand; and believe our wealth of prior experience in supported residential service accommodation has us well placed to make this a reality.
We are equally excited by our newly established Youth Headquarters (YHQ) which supports 18-25 years olds to have fun and learn new skills.
We respect our clients, their family members and all other significant people in their lives, and we respect our employees and recognise the important role each of them has to play.
We don’t rest on our past successes. We continually improve. We are passionate about doing all we can to be the best we can be.
We are honest with others and with ourselves. We do what we say we will do and accept responsibility for our actions.
We care greatly for the people we support and are creative in our solutions. We love the new. We’re always looking for creative ways of better helping people meet their goals and dreams. We’re open to ideas and constantly seek new and improved ways of working.
To enrich the lives of people through individualised services, delivered with a sense of warmth and friendliness, that empower people with disability to live their best life.
To be a leading provider of quality services in regional Victoria, creating an inclusive world where people with disability live enriched lives of their choosing with our support.
Our values underpin everything we do.
