With disability support services continuing to be in demand, Access Recreation has expanded to offer its services to residents of the Bundaberg Region.
Access Recreation Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation which started in Rockhampton 30 years ago, offering support to any person with a disability aged from seven to 65 years.
Since June, the team has been working within the region and has noticed a steady growth in demand for their services.
Service Manager Cirsty Murphy, who has over 11 years’ experience working in the disability sector in Bundaberg, said the organisation delivered a high-quality service to locals.
“Access Recreation is a registered NDIS provider with over 30 years of knowledge and experience providing support for people with a disability within Rockhampton and the surrounding areas,” Cirsty said.
“As a local organisation, we are rich in knowledge and networks that have been developed over many years of providing services and working in collaboration with our community.
“We believe in providing holistic support, respecting choices, and empowering people to achieve their goals and dreams.”
The organisation provides a range of services for the community ranging from group programs to individual assistance in the home.
“We provide a range of services including short term accommodation, group programs, plan management and more,” she said.
“We are always striving to improve the quality of life of the people we work with and foster their independence, while providing quality support that is second to none.
“We pride ourselves on matching the right lifestyle support workers with the right participants to provide supports to suit their needs to achieve their NDIS goals, wanting to build connections for people with a disability in our community.”
Access Recreation has employed a number of local staff to help deliver the service to the community and is currently looking to recruit more lifestyle support workers.
“Since opening our doors in June we have employed 12 Bundaberg locals,” she said.
“We are currently recruiting for lifestyle support workers, so please get in contact if you are interested.”
