Community Living Australia on Friday 17 November 2017 officially opened our brand new Fleurieu Peninsula, Southern Metro & Kangaroo Island office at 31 Beach Road Christies Beach.
Opened by Mayor Lorraine Rosenberg – Mayor for the City of Onkaparinga, the office will serve as a headquarters for managing all of our services on Kangaroo Island, the Fleurieu Peninsula and within the Southern Metro area.
It is expected that more than 7 and a half thousand people with disability will be eligible for NDIS services within these regions alone. The opportunity to support people to live their life in the way they want is one that we look forward to. Partnering with our clients to create services and supports that help them achieve their goals is our priority.
Chief Executive Mark Kulinski said, “our new office adds to our ever growing support for people to transition to and thrive with the support of the NDIS. Having our local team readily available and well supported by our Regional Manager – Paula Roberts, clients and their families are assured of dedicated local support and responsiveness to their needs.”
Regional Manager Paula Roberts added, “the opening of this office also demonstrates our commitment to be part of and active within our local community.”
Adding, “the work we do cannot be done in isolation. We work with many community partners to bring our services to life so that our clients can connect more, do more and achieve more.”
Having a brand new office space is incredibly exciting for our whole team across the Fleurieu, Southern Metro, and Kangaroo Island and we want to thank Mayor Lorraine Rosenberg for opening the venue, her support is greatly appreciated.It is expected the new office will see many more clients and families join the organisation, particularly as the NDIS has gone live from 1 January 2018 in these regions.
