Providing flexible support options for people with a disability and their families and carers

Planning Ahead


Planning Ahead services are individualised, creative and resourceful; whether it’s planning the needs and wants you have right now, for next year or for a time well into the future. Our resulting plan is one that is driven by you – consulting with family, friends and supports – designed for you, with your specific wants, needs and goals as the focus.

It can be stressful caring for someone else or for yourself. Often people are tired, exhausted and may find it difficult to see the benefits of allocating time to plan when there are so many unknowns and so many questions. Often people don’t know who or where to go to or even the right questions to ask. One of the key aspects of our Planning Ahead services is to motivate you and help you see the benefits of planning and of having someone with expertise and resources, working at your side.
