Disability Services

Bethany Community Support has discontinued its disability therapy services in Victoria’s Barwon and south-west regions. Our services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme will cease by 15 April 2021. We’ve notified all our participants and have been providing them support as they seek alternative service arrangements. Read our announcement about ending disability therapy services.

Understanding the NDIS and your NDIS plan can be difficult, and we know that it can be overwhelming at times. We can assist with understanding:

  • How to implement your plan
  • Who to call
  • The options available to you

Bethany Community Support has a team of experienced support coordinators, occupational therapists and behavioural support specialist who can help you with your NDIS journey. We work with children from 7 years of age to adults of 65 years of age and our focus is on giving you choice and control of your supports.

We can provide dual assessments for participants with Speech and OT goals funded in their plans and have established relationships with Disability service providers across the South West Region.

Our support coordinators will spend time getting to know you and your family, and will work with you to achieve your goals by linking you with the supports and services that are right for you.

Our team members have varied and extensive experience, skills and training in the areas of:

  • Disability
  • Social work
  • Occupational therapy
  • Early childhood intervention
  • Mental health
  • Behaviour support
  • Sexuality

As well as providing services from our well-equipped therapy rooms based at our Warrnambool office, support can be provided in the home and at schools / day services. Bethany staff also regularly travel to other parts of the region, in particular to:

  • Portland
  • Hamilton
  • Terang
  • Camperdown

  • Counselling for children
