Welcome to Empowered Choice Support Services
Updated: Mar 21
We are your local disability support services in Dubbo, NSW. Did you know that we recently celebrated our third year in business? After reflecting on everything we have achieved in three years, my team and I are excited to see where the next three years take us!
I want to share with you about my "why". I have seen how navigating life with a disability isn't always easy, especially in a world that is often ableist and dismissive of the community's needs. When I started Empowered Choice Support Services, my goal was to be the difference that I wanted to see in disability support services. I am passionate about giving people with disabilities the power and authority to control their lives and claim their rights.
We facilitate our participants' growth, confidence, and strength. Our committed support workers aim to assist participants in living their best life. Individuals are supported in decision-making, and they exercise their ability to live an independent and empowered life.
From day one, our culture has revolved around client-centred compassionate care. We firmly believe in putting the participant at the core of everything we do. This means working hard to customise our services to meet each participant's unique needs and preferences. Our aim is to carefully select and match our support workers with individuals to increase the likelihood of goal attainment. We work closely with participants to ensure they are empowered to make their own choices and decisions.
Our team of support workers comprises dedicated professionals passionate about making a positive difference in the lives of our participants.
When you choose Empowered Choice Support Services, you become part of our family, and we will do everything we can to support you and help you achieve your goals. Along with supporting our participants, our goal has always been to increase the visibility of people with disability in the community and reduce the stigma associated with living with a disability. I've always believed that visibility and connection within the broader community help challenge harmful stereotypes and work at continuing the conversation about disability in Australia.
Some ways Empowered Choice Support Services has done this is:
Donations to local organizations, including furniture to Orana Support
Fundraisers for Autism Awareness, Epilepsy and Australia's Biggest Morning Tea Events
Sponsoring the Rhino Awards
Providing free support to those requiring support to access the NDIS
Relationships with Lourdes Hospital Brain Injury unit, which has led to referrals through other schemes
At Empowered Choice Support Services, we understand that choosing a disability support service provider is a big decision. We want to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. Our team is always available to answer questions and provide the information you need to make an informed decision about your care and support.
We work closely with participants to understand their goals and move them closer to the life they envision for themselves. At Empowered Choice Support Services, we are all about turning goals into achievements. Let's work together to turn your goals into achievements today!
