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 wanted 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 are a registered provider with the NDIS and our team has many years of experience supporting people with disabilities and their families. We are passionate about quality services where we help people to achieve their goals.

Carmen moved to Kununurra in 2018 from Kalumburu where she had spent most of her life. She now lives in her own home which she loves and adores. Carmen is very passionate about art and craft, she enjoys fishing and is a good story teller, often telling stories about her community, culture and people. Carmen can be shy sometimes, especially if she is seeing someone for the first time, however once she is familiar with that person she is the most fun and amazing person.
Carmen is now living independently, her health and wellbeing has improved and she loves going with her support workers on fishing trips, swimming and creating art and craft which she hangs in her home and at the Far North office. Carmen has also been able to teach her support workers how to make damper which she says was taught to her by her grandmother back in Kalumburu.
Carmen tells us that she feels safe. She says that coming to Kununurra has given her a good feeling. She is happy that she has a home that she calls her own and that she is able to go fishing and have picnics with friends and create art and craft in her home.
“I called my friend Cherrie in Kalumburu and I told her that she needs to come to Kununurra and get supported by the Far North mob. They are looking after me, given me a nice house and I have my own money. Stop suffering and come here to Far North and they will look after you”.
