Activ Geraldton branch was formed in the mid 1950’s with support from the local community. Local families wanted better support for local people living with disability. We opened our first disability supported accommodation house in 1983 and our commercial arm, Activ Business Services, opened in 1986 to support the local business community.
We have built a reputation as the only Australian Disability Employer (ADE) in the region and a world class craypot supplier. Our customers actively participate in their community and are valued citizens of Geraldton.
The NDIS has been available in the Midwest Gascoyne region, which includes Greater Geraldton, since July 2019. Participants are encouraged to move their funding to the national model. Activ can support you on your NDIS journey in any way you require.
Activ Geraldton offers a range of tailored support, which includes accommodation, community, employment, education and training services.
We are the only provider in Geraldton that offers 24-hour disability accommodation support. You can utilise our drop-in support services in your own home or you can live in one of our shared accommodation houses. Our short-term accommodation (previously known as respite) is available via drop-in services and allows you to meet new people and try new activities.
We also encourage community participation through a range of community based activities. Whatever your goal, Activ Community Services Geraldton can help you achieve it. Whether it is finding employment, getting a driver’s licence, learning life skills, increasing independence, volunteering,, improving your health and fitness, attending appointments or doing banking – we can assist you with living the life you choose. As part of our community services, we offer you the opportunity to complete ASDAN programs to help develop your ICT, personal, social, independent and work-related skills. We have staff who are qualified ASDAN trainers who are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals – whatever they may be.
We are the only ADE in Geraldton that offers disability employment services. Activ Pathways, our registered training organisation (RTO) delivers training and education to our customers and employees.
