WHAT ARE DISABILITY SUPPORTS?

Biala's Disability Supports are NDIS registered and available to community members living with a disability who are registered with the NDIS.

Dedicated to fulfilling the goals of each participant, Biala collaborates intimately with all involved in each participant's personal plan to generate the absolute best possible individual experience and outcome.

Biala offers a number of services to community members in the Hunter Region living with a disability. The focus remains on the participant within every available service with consumer satisfaction highest on the agenda.

Biala's participant centred approach guarantees that personal goals are consistently being worked towards and changing needs are met. With a team of dedicated staff and volunteers Biala's Disability Supports services strive to provide experiences that are not available anywhere else. The boutique nature of Biala ensures that participants are treated as individuals with care and nurturing from all staff and volunteers. Participants of Biala often refer to the service as 'family' with some participants being a part of the service for over 20years.

Biala management and staff work closely alongside families, carers and participants to provide consistent and professional delivery of services. Communication is the key to ensuring the best possible experience and outcomes for everyone in our care, as a result Biala management are available at any time to discuss the development of participants when required.

Biala believes that flexibility is a must within the disability support services and will cater to participant needs as best as possible

 

Community Access Group

Available to community members living with disability on the NDIS, Community Access Group programs operate Monday to Friday weekly, fort-nightly of a Saturday and cater to people aged 16yrs to 64yrs of age living in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas.

The focus of this program is to engage participants in community based activities, which encourage independence and personal growth. All programs are generated through the collaboration of participants, carers, support workers and management to ensure that all participant goals are being worked towards. This program is highly participant centred and as a result, programs remain flexible to changing group needs.

Community Access Group programs work towards developing healthy lifestyle choices through the integration of physical activities such as tenpin bowling, dance, the gym, walking, swimming and various sports. Healthy eating is heavily promoted, along with food preparation and cooking.
Biala believes that the Arts play an important role within the health of all people and as a result are excited to include fine arts, music and dance into the Community Access program. Participants are engaged fortnightly with Aaron from Rockcave Music and Dancing monthly with Avelina from Ability Dance. Of a Wednesday, participants are consistently creating artistic masterpieces such as tie-dyed clothing, mosaic frames, plaster moulds, canvas paintings and various other exciting projects. 

Through the Community Access program, participants are given the opportunity to discover new friendships, learn different skills, develop self-awareness and work towards their personal goals in a nurturing and safe group environment.
