The Minister was impressed by one of The Trust’s clients, Jerome, who gave a great speech about the confidence he has gained from working with the Trust and how it drives him to study and find employment. Jerome is a great example of how the Disability Trust isn’t raising the floor - they are removing the roof and encouraging everyone with a disability to reach their full potential”, said Mr Ward.
The new The Disability Trust facility will provide the Canterbury area the ability to access high quality support in a professional and engaging way. Some of these options include supported independent living, accommodation support, sport and recreational activities, clinical services, support coordination, travel and holiday planning in addition to life skills and professional development.
As part of the new facility, The Disability Trust will also run the Club Trust Program, providing services with a particular emphasise to youth and young adult development and wellbeing. These include day programs, school leaver support and some weekend programs.
Senior Manager Rhian Preston noted, “We are excited to be a part of the Canterbury community. Our major focus and goal for this office is to bring forward a new and refreshing way to approach the NDIS programing. We are committed to ensuring both our clients and their families are utilising their NDIS funding to an organisation that really prides itself on its relationship and engagement with the community”.
“We have set out to give our clients the opportunity to live life the best way possible and in a way that they choose to. We have different programs to accommodate and are tailored to one’s own personal needs and interests”.
