Self-Managed Services

As part of its vision, Interchange Illawarra ensures people with disability are the drivers of change.

Our partnered approach to providing services is designed to support individuals to plan the kind of support arrangements that suit their personal goals – and that recognise the family as part of this process.

Self-management is a great example of this vision in action.

Parents & Carers Support

As well as caring for people with disabilities and their families, we believe in developing opportunities for parents and carers to ensure their lives, as well as the lives of those they care for and their immediate families, are enriched.

Flexible Respite Support

Interchange Illawarra provides Flexible Respite Support to people with developmental disabilities, their families and carers using both volunteers and support workers.

Community Inclusion

This option provides quality social inclusion pathways for the people we support. It may include recreational outings, short holidays and individual assistance to access community activities and pursue personal interests and hobbies.

Community inclusion is available to people with the aim to increase their interaction and opportunities to learn and follow interests.

Support Coordination

Interchange Illawarra offers support coordination for people with a disability, their families and carers, who need someone to assist them to identify and access the services they need in order to live in their home and interact with their community.

Support Coordination is tailored to the needs of each individual and a ‘person-centred plan’ is developed. This plan details the many strengths and qualities of that person, which are important to anyone in order to have a happy, fulfilled, active and safe life.

Brokerage Services

People with disabilities who have Self Managed or Client Directed funding and organisations that provide support to people with disabilities are able to broker the following services from Interchange Illawarra Inc

Funding can be used to purchase a range of support options that meet the needs of the individual, their family and carers.
