We currently provide services throughout the Geelong Region, Werribee, Wyndham, Western Melbourne, Warrnambool and South West Victoria with offices in Geelong, Werribee, Braybrook, and Warrnambool.

Gateways has over 5 years proven experience with the National Disability Insurance Scheme, (NDIS), since it began in the Geelong region in July 2013. We have assisted children and adults with a disability and their families to implement their NDIS plans to develop skills, try new experiences and achieve great outcomes! We continually strive to adapt and tailor our supports to suit each individual who chooses our services.
Gateways’ skilled and experienced team are here to support people to live enjoyable, meaningful lives in their community.
