.Life is a journey that can take many turns. We’re here to be with you on that journey.
We are committed to improving the lives of the people we support. We do this primarily through our person- centered approach, which puts people at the Centre of all our activity. You may be looking for day to day support; a group or class to join for fun, fitness or friendships; transport to help you with getting out and about or professional support for the challenges that life can present.
We offer services that reach out, advocate, connect and inform. We offer support around people’s needs, interests and issues. We provide a range of programs and activities for families and individuals living in the community and we work with local people to promote a diverse, socially-just and inclusive community
Our dynamic and diverse team of staff and volunteers offers highly skilled and professional support to you.
We carefully select our staff, recognizing the need to have professional skills balanced by life skills. We are passionate about our work, and we will take every opportunity to collaborate with you around your needs. IDSS embraces opportunities to train our staff and volunteers to ensure that we bring the latest knowledge and skills to our workplace. We are a highly mobile workforce; able to access you and move in and around our community.
We put you first
Our aim is to provide you with the standard of support we expect for our own families. This means valuing the unique qualities of each participant and seeing the whole person, not just a list of support needs.
