In 2015, UnitingCare West introduced a range of services in the Great Southern region, including support for people who are living with a disability in their own home and creating opportunities for people to integrate and build social networks in the community.

Participants enjoy activities that increase independence, attend community activities and have opportunities to be part of the community across the Great Southern area.

UnitingCare West also provides respite to enable carers to have a break from their caring responsibilities.

How I Learned About UnitingCare West

About two years ago, I happened to pick up a copy of Good Sammy News. Inside I found a story about the Disability Awards Night that Uniting Care West (UCW) had attended the previous year.

The story stayed in the back of my mind until I found myself in a small crisis. I had to care for my child, who was in the process of completing his school year, and as a result I was unable to work. The agency that had been supporting us was closing its doors and I needed to turn elsewhere.

I enquired about other agencies and later attended my first meeting with UnitingCare West, to find out how they might support us, and other families in Albany. The room was packed and I was able to find out a lot of information on their services. In the meantime I continued to search for an appropriate agency for my child’s needs, while still being cared and supported by my mum.
