Our Vision Statement
“To be the facility that parent carers and working age adults choose for themselves in order to fulfil their highest potential in a safe, fun and invigorating environment.”
What Yarra means to us
The name Yarra originates from the language of the indigenous people of Australia known as Aborigines. Yarra Yarra is Aborigine for waterfall and is their name for one of the rivers that runs through the State of Victoria. The Yarra River runs from the Yarra Valley through Melbourne to the sea. Sue and Brian lived in Australia with their family for a couple of years and their love of the people, wildlife and county inspired them to call their business Yarra Services in honour of their time there.
By giving reassurance, dependability and flexibility to carers and a stimulating, safe environment for working age adults we enable them to achieve more than they visualise for themselves.
At our community house we have gained CQC recognition as a good service. For those people who regularly attend our day service or care farm we are available from 1-24 hours with staff who you already know well. In order to provide a bespoke service we only have a maximum of 2 people at a time. During this time we can really focus on maximising your independent living skills as well as having fun accessing the community.
Everyone is encouraged to be as independent as they can be. Making choices about every thing we’re eating, where we’re going, when users are waking up, showering and going to bed. It is entirely focused on what the users want and when they want to do it. All users are encouraged to do as much as they possibly can with the support they need to achieve it
