We believe that
If people are active and visible in their communities, they become known and recognised for themselves (as Bill or Ann) rather than labelled by their differences. By being a part of their community, people are able to increase their experiences, choices and decision-making and are not limited to a designated label of disability, age, gender or culture. They become active contributors to and of our society.
CCA has an overriding commitment to providing services that make a difference in the life of every person receiving support.
Our mission is to build choices and options for people living with disabilities.
Our purpose is to actively promote independence and autonomy.
We have provided services to people with a range of different and sometimes multiple disabilities and health care needs. These include people with developmental disabilities including cerebral palsy, cognitive or intellectual disabilities, sensory disabilities, physical disabilities, accident related disabilities including acquired brain injuries or spinal cord injuries, degenerative illnesses including dementia, MD, MND or MS, dual diagnosis, early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s and age related health problems.
We are a not-for-profit organisation operating in the community sector. The Membership of the organisation elects a Board of Directors annually.
