Spectrum MRC’s Disability Services focus on the needs of people with disabilities and their carers and encourages people to reach their full potential. Services are provided to people living in North and West Metropolitan Melbourne, particularly for families from migrant and refugee backgrounds.
At Spectrum we celebrate the things that make us different! We listen to what families want and find creative ways to meet your needs and link you into support. Our pool of 200 bilingual support workers speak more than 50 languages. Workers are matched according to your interests and personality, as well as language and culture.
Spectrum MRC’s Disability Services provides support and activities in your home, access to programs in your local community as well as a variety of group programs for people with disabilities, carers and family members to join.
