Get Started Disability Support Program
When Mandy first came home from rehab, she didn't know anyone living in a wheelchair. With three young kids, she simply wanted to take them to the movies by train, but unfortunately she had no idea how to get there or who to ask for advice.
An idea was sparked and in 2017, Mandy wrote and trialed a Disability Support Program in Mitchell Shire. The six-week program covering every aspect of living with a disability and was a great success. Now she is registering Get Started Disability Support Australia a charity and aiming to spread the idea across Australia.
The Get Started Disability Support Program will ensure that all individuals and their families, who are learning to live with a disability, have access to great local supports and great local knowledge within their own local neighbourhood.
Our six-week program will introducing people to government, not for profit and corporate supports that are available to everyone living with disability.
Plus the Get Started Disability Support Program will connect local community members to each other, creating life long friendships for both individuals and their families.
