Gateways is recognised and respected for our expertise in supporting children and adults with a broad range of disabilities including autism, intellectual disabilities, developmental delays, challenging behaviours and complex medical needs. We are committed to providing quality, safety and wellbeing to every person we support.
We currently provide services throughout the Geelong region, Wyndham, western Melbourne, Warrnambool and South West Victoria with offices in Geelong, Werribee, and Footscray.
Services includes early intervention and therapy, support coordination, group recreation and skill development activities, individual in-home support as well as parent support and education, day activities, housing and support for adults as well as children in out of home care.
Gateways has many years of proven experience with the National Disability Insurance Scheme, (NDIS), supporting participants since the scheme 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 their personal goals. We strive to adapt and tailor our supports to suit each individual who chooses our services.
Gateways’ experienced and dedicated staff support people to live enjoyable, meaningful lives in their community.
“It means so much to us as parents to have your help. Life can be challenging with special needs in the family, and to get support means the world to us.” – participant parent.
We are committed to providing quality, safety and wellbeing to every person who uses our services. Our rigorous recruitment policies and procedures promote the safety and protection of all vulnerable people we support, and we promote and foster a zero tolerance culture and work environment where client abuse and neglect and discrimination are never tolerated.
Gateways acknowledges the support of the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments to enable people with disabilities and additional needs to achieve their goals.
