Get access to flexibile, trustworthy, reliable support
Flexibility - It's Our Strength
Extra flexibility, we know how to do that! Since when is every day the same as the last day? Never, that's when!
When things change, we can too. It's good being small like us, we can make things work.
Support Workers - we know them, we trust them
Yes, we're extra choosy!
Trustworthy, reliable Support Workers who fit Interchange Illawarra's culture and uphold our values. Not just anybody gets to join our team, only the best will do, you have to earn your spot at Interchange!
Support Coordination - by locals, for locals
Extra fantastic Support Coordinators - connect with local, expert Support Coordinators who listen. We look out for you; working together to live your best life.
Parent/Carer Health & Well-being Program
You read correctly! Extra support for Parents and Carers! When you join Interchange you are also included in invitations to attend free Parent/Carer activities! Winery tours, lunches, dinners, paint & sip, Xmas in July etc!
Social Support Programs where you have a say!
Yes, we are extra interested in what you want to do!
Nothing worse than joining a group that doesn't listen to each and every person who attends. Let us know what activities you would like to do with the group and we'll do our best to make it happen.
More than just support - it's about connection
Looking for something extra specific in a Support Worker? Let's find someone together that you like and trust. We understand how important it is to actually like the person you are spending time with!
Be a part of your Community, enjoy the outdoors, take in a movie, try some bushwalking, how about canoeing on the lake? The opportunities are endless!
Need a hand with everyday things? A bit of cooking or cleaning support? There's so many things that can come under this heading, it's up to you what you choose.
"Friendship isn't a big thing, it's lots of small things." Join one of our Social Support groups and meet some like minded people and choose what you would like to do together. We have Social Support groups that run during the week, on weekends and evenings too!
You have goals? We do too! The funny thing is.... our goals look very much like yours! Our Support Coordinators get pretty excited about helping to make things happen and bringing smiles to everyone's faces! The possibilities are endless.
Guess who has three properties to choose from for a little bit of respite? (that would be us of course!) You can even go away on a Short Holiday - cruises, Gold Coast, North Coast, Melbourne, Blue Mountains, Snowy Mountains... just to name a few of our past trips!
We are so proud of our Saturplay Program! Developed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and/or challenging behaviours between the ages of 4 and 12. It's fun, it's social, and it's in an environment where children can develop skills and access the community. You'll be pretty impressed with this Program, that's for sure!
For over 40 years we have supported people with disabilities and their parents/carers in living their best lives, with particular expertise in working with people who have ASD and/or intellectual disabilities.
