To be recognised as a growing, flexible and proactive person centred service, and to excel in our quality of service through our staff and our collaborative approach.
Mudgee Disability Support Service will work openly with the community and other organisations to maximise life's opportunities for individuals with a disability.
To achieve this we will:
Mudgee Disability Support Service was originally known as Mudgee Accommodation Support Service. The service opened in 1989 and initially supported people with intellectual disability to gain accommodation and to live independently under the auspices of ADHC (Ageing, Disability and Home Care). The service employed approximately 4 support workers.
In 2004 Christine Puxty, C.E.O came on board and made some big changes to the organisation. This saw a name change to Mudgee Disability Support Service; the development and management of a Children's Group Home; the addition of Day Program services and Respite Accommodation and a growth in clientele that is still continuing today.
MDSS now has around 30 staff who have a minimum qualification of Cert IV in Disability (or currently working towards) who are experienced in working with complex needs and challenging behaviours. We provide supports in all areas of disability services and our staff are passionate and commited to delivering the best care for all our participants.
