In 1992, a small group of people with disabilities realised their vision of creating an organisation to provide the daily supports they required to live a productive and purposeful life.
A fully accredited non-profit organisation, 121 Care provides support for people with a disability on the Sunshine Coast, South Burnett, Brisbane and Gold Coast areas. This includes providing practical support, services, advocacy, housing solutions, a public forum and use of an accessible vehicle.
Our services include:
- Personal care
- Overnight care (sleepovers)
- Meal preparation
- Community participation
- Accessible transport
- Social support
- Holiday care
- Family respite
- Aged Care
All staff have a current criminal history check | first aid and CPR | manual handling training | workplace, health & safety training.
Under the guidance of the Management Committee, clients and their family members, the organisation has developed and grown into a small, robust service provider. We encourage people with disabilities to access educational, employment and social opportunities.
121 Care’s Global Beliefs
- We believe in striving for a just society
- People with a disability have the right to the same opportunities, lifestyle options, level of security and dignity that are enjoyed by members of society who do not have a disability
- We believe that for a society to be “just”, there must be a commitment made to support individuals with a disability regardless of the financial cost; support to be “needs based”.
Providing support for people with disabilities
121 Care will make every reasonable effort to make the person with a disability aware of the standard of service that they can expect and that services will be provided in a safe manner which respects their dignity and independence and is responsive to their social, cultural and physical needs.
Access to the service will be decided on the basis of need and the capacity of the service to meet that need. 121 Care will take into account the client’s views in planning and evaluation of the service.
