My Place

SGSCC disAbility are dedicated to working with you, listening to you and making sure that you have choice and control over your life.

Going Places

You can take complete control of the places you’ll go. SGSCC disAbility can help you to develop your support plans, making sure that you are in control and at the centre of all decision making.

We are able to work with you to create a plan where you make the big choices about who supports, and how they support you at your place. This place could be your home, your workplace, your favourite place.

SGSCC disAbility promotes person centred practices. The term ‘person-centred’ describes service and supports that are centred on an individual and their strengths, needs, interests and goals. Person-centred service delivery ensures that people with disability lead and direct the services and supports they use.

The intention of person-centred approaches is to maximise, as much as reasonably possible, the capacity for people with disabilities to take control of their lives.

Person-centred approaches ensure that clients are at the centre of service design, planning, delivery and review. The Client shapes and directs services and support arrangements to suit their strengths, needs and goals with the support of families, friends, carers, advocates and their circle of support.
