JewishCare has been providing services and helping people with a disability for decades. We have the widest range of individualised services, which helps people with a disability to achieve their goals and aspirations at home, work or the community.
JewishCare is big enough to guarantee best practice, yet small enough to really care about you and your individual needs. This may include utilising our 500+ volunteers if appropriate.
JewishCare is committed to high quality service. Our dedicated team of disability support workers have a comprehensive range of disability experience and qualifications. The team is backed up by a very experienced team of coordinators and team leaders who provide supervision and guidance as well as offering an ‘On Call’ service for out of business hours emergencies (365 days a year).
The 2015 survey of our clients, family/carers and volunteers carried out by The Voice Project has confirmed the belief that JewishCare provides high quality services and care to our clients. In virtually every aspect our results benchmarked higher than equivalent organisations with clients expressing a very high level of satisfaction with the services received.
JewishCare actively supports people with a disability to confidently engage in their own lives, in partnership with families and communities. We promote independence, and make sure that the service is assisting people to experience a good quality of life and achieve their personal outcomes.
JewishCare offers a range of unique value add services to clients who are already accessing our services or the services of other providers. These include access to community funded programs like Drop in Support, Print 35 Design Studio,Big Brother Big Sister and Camp Sababa and Sababa Senior.
