Activ opens new accommodation home in Geraldton

People living with disability in Geraldton now have more options with the opening of Activ’s first new accommodation home in 30 years.

The opening of the new house will provide two Activ customers with the opportunity to move out of home and live independently.

Activ CEO Danielle Newport said the support of Activ, combined with National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funding, meant customers could aspire to greater independence through increased participation in their community, employment opportunities and independent living.

“We’re excited to extend our service offerings in Geraldton and offer more living options for locals who live with disability,” said Ms Newport.

With a strong focus on independence, Activ also ran an information session called ‘Achieving Independence’ in Geraldton.

Topics covered at the information session included NDIS and funding, accommodation options, independence and how Activ can help.

As part of Activ’s commitment to delivering services in regional Western Australia, Activ also held its board meeting in Geraldton on the same day.
