The Story Behind
Overcoming Obstacles, where individuals and their needs are at the centre of our service, providing support for people living with disability.
As a team, we have over 20 years experience in disability support, education and learning. Our passion is a driving force in assisting individuals to reach and achieve their goals in life.
At Overcoming Obstacles, our mission is to ensure clients and their families have the right resources, best skills and optimum confidence they need, to participate in the community and access the same kind of opportunities and services as everybody else.
An opportunity was seen within the industry, to build on what disability support looks like and more importantly, feels like. Our vision was born to create a new, welcoming and enriching environment that supports individuals and families to exercise their choice and control to develop new skills that build independence.
Through the programs at Overcoming Obstacles, we hope to empower individuals to access and create a life that is meaningful to them now and in their future.
