At Special Care Australia (SCA), we firmly believe in the boundless potential that resides within every individual. For people with special needs, the path to realizing this potential can be paved with unique challenges. However, with the right support and resources, these hurdles can transform into stepping stones for growth and fulfillment. At SCA, we have designed engaging programs that are not only community-based but also person-centred. This means they are tailored to meet the distinct needs and goals of each person, while promoting inclusion and community engagement.

Nurturing the Individual

One size does not fit all, especially when it comes to supporting people with special needs. We understand that every individual has their own set of interests, talents, and aspirations. Our person-centred approach ensures that our support programs are customized to suit the unique requirements and goals of each individual. From the initial assessment to the ongoing support, we actively involve the individuals and their families in the decision-making process. This ensures that our programs are not just about care, but also about enabling the individual to lead a more independent and fulfilling life.

Building Community Connections

Our community-based approach ensures that the individuals we support are active and valued members of the community. Through various community engagement activities, we encourage social interaction, building relationships, and fostering a sense of belonging. Whether it be participating in local events, volunteering, or simply enjoying recreational activities within the community, SCA ensures that individuals have the opportunity to be a part of the society they live in.
