Far North Community Services was incorporated on the 25th August 2016. This followed lots of conversations with people with disabilities, their families and carers and other services across the Kimberley.
We heard that families want a local service provider, with staff who live and work in the region.
Families told us the service has to be flexible to their needs and they wanted strong relationships with our staff where trust is built over many years of continuity and reliability.
We commenced delivering services on the 24th October 2016 with 50 staff and 94 people with disabilities with a plan for support. We shared the vision of quality services in the Kimberley and access to more services. We attracted Board members and Senior staff with lived experience of disability, who have family members with disability, many years of caring for a person with a disability, or experience working alongside people with disabilities and their families.
Our offices are in Broome, Derby Fitzroy Crossing and Derby, however we deliver services all across the Kimberley.
At Far North we believe in inclusion, keeping families strong, respecting and celebrating culture and working with you in the proper way.
