Gateways provides shared living support to people with disabilities in Geelong, the Barwon region and Camperdown.
Person-centred planning is used to develop and improve opportunities for people living in Gateways houses by seeking input from the person, and all of the important people in their family and support network.
Support is provided to people with complex needs to achieve their goals including:
- daily living and independence skills
- community participation
Achieving big and small things helps to build people’s self-esteem and confidence.
Gateways actively supports people to be as independent and active as possible while providing support and supervision to ensure their safety and wellbeing during the day and overnight.
