We work with people who are living with intellectual, cognitive and/or psychiatric disabilities across a variety of different programs.
Our ultimate goal is to assist people to live the lifestyle of their choice with as much independence as possible. Each of our programs focuses on:
We work within a person-centred planning framework, which is a key element to our commitment to provide a flexible and individualised service.
All Graceville programs are underpinned by the belief that recovery is possible for everyone and we support people to develop their own personal understanding of recovery through the exploration of key recovery concepts including hope, connectedness, active sense of self, personal responsibility and discovery.
